  • Norman Henry Pattendon MVO MBE 1944-2006

    Ian Pusey


    Norman Pattendon was a very fine scratchbuilder in S scale, working mainly in nickel silver with brass fittings. As these photographs show he had a real eye for the finish and weathering on his models. The big shame is that, after several false starts, he never finished a layout to run them on. Furness Railway 2-2-2WT No. 36 was one of six of this type, built in 1866 by Sharp Stewart and withdrawn in 1898. The model was built 2004-6 with split axles and frames, powered by an RG4 1219. It has Sharman carrying wheels and steel-tyred cast brass driving wheels.
