    Even with tunnel vision I doubt one would have seen such a thing ?

    Now a pannier is nice granted but a West Country is a step up :) .
    I’m another in the Chris and Rob club who admires your modelling and therefore can’t but help admire a pannier.

    As has been said elsewhere, a pannier never offends..

    That will do very nicely indeed. I can confirm that I most definitely, without any ambiguity whatsoever, positively approve of the latest motive power. A giant leap forward in loveliness.

    What a kind, considerate soul you are CK. I will happily take any gifted pannier and most definitely promise to look after it in the appropriate manner. Have I mentioned that I recently bought a new chop saw?

    The only highlight of a brief sojourn in the Metropolis were the Thompson A2/3's at KX. Go west young man, said the poster, and I wasn't disappointed. No one else had anything resembling a Pannier or a 14xx 0-4-2T. Where I lived, all LMS locos looked alike... :))

    That 16xx looks a treat. I have mentioned it to my friend Brian Brown, who was Westward back in the day. I only hope Dapol produce one in O gauge someday.

    P4 panniers this time, on 'Parkend Marsh Sidings', currently under construction by John Farmer.


    1608 is another Cotswold kit, the body built by no less than Malcolm Mitchell, which John picked up second hand a while ago. He had the chassis commissioned, using Alan Gibson modified 64Xx milled side frames.

    5420 is mine and originated as a Westward kit, although this also features Alan Gibson milled side frames.

    5420 was shedded at Lydney for a time, to work the school services between Lydney and Sharpness (via Gloucester), following the damage to the Severn Bridge 1960. It probably wouldn't have been seen further up the Severn & Wye system, but one can speculate!

    It's had some paint - grey primer.

    It is however suffering from pannier droop.

    Wrong sort of van I'm afraid.

    Ironically I saw the very same photograph recently and assumed it was of Italian origin along with the person who shared it with me.

    I've been reading about these, apparently one might even have had a shirtbutton logo.
