GCR Robinson class 8K 2-8-0 no. 1185.

GCR Robinson class 8K 2-8-0 no. 1185. Built from scratch by Walter (Wally) West. This model has a wire drive at drawbar level, from the motor and gears in the loco through to a very heavy flywheel unit mounted in the tender, producing a powerful locomotive with very good slow running qualities. Superbly painted by Bernard Miller with hand painted lettering and crests, in the lined GCR mixed traffic livery.
