BR Britannia class 4-6-2 no. 70006 Robert Burns Mick Bayliss My loco collection 19th March 202019th March 2020 BR Britannia class 4-6-2 no. 70006 Robert Burns. A Masterpiece model loco, obtained in a swap deal, second hand and with only very minor repairs needed, otherwise mint condition. Switchable DC/DCC and sound. Truly amazing detail and surprisingly robust. I have photographic evidence that I spotted the original loco heading south on a goods train, at the signals at Syston North Junction, waiting to go round the sharp curve towards Melton Mowbray in 1966. Admittedly she was without nameplates and didn’t look as clean as depicted in the model, but still great memories.
