The Durham Light Infantry
BR(ER) Gresley V2 class No. 60964 The Durham Light Infantry. Built and painted by myself circa 1992, from the DJH “Limited Edition” kit (a massive investment at the time for me). Slaters wheels and an RG7 Portescap motor and gears unit. The lining was achieved quite successfully using transfers. I was very pleased with the finished model for a couple of years until I needed cash for another project and I placed it for sale at a guild show. Stuart Tebbett bought it, which was the start of a good friendship which lasted until he sadly passed away. I have Stuart to thank for the quality of collection that I have today. He and Ebay, (I am “thedurhamlightinfantry”) taught me how to successfully buy and sell and strive with every sale or purchase for continual improvement.
