LNER (ex NBR) D32 class no. 9887

LNER 9887.
 LNER (ex NBR) D32 class no. 9887. Built and painted (unlined) by myself on commission from the Majestic Models kit, with Portescap motor and gears unit and american pick-ups. Lining added using a bow-pen by John Cockcroft.

The Majestic Models proprietor and designer of this excellent kit, the late George Dawson, was a smashing chap. After I had bought my first kit, a Connoisseur J71 tank,  from him in 1990, he became a very good friend. To say that he taught me loads about building O gauge models, is a massive understatement.
