L&NWR Webb Coal Tank 0-6-2T no. 205. Apologies if this causes confusion and I know this model is not 7mm, but I do have some 10mm models for sale and this is one of them. It was originally part built from scratch by John Dale of Old Originals. I found it on the workbench (I use that word loosely as he doesn’t often do any work) of Martin Brooker. John had started the build and then got bored and used it as part payment for another project. So I bought it from Martin, completed it and painted it. That was all of 20 years ago. It may be a little short of fine detail in places, but I think it takes the part of the basic Coal Tank with the Ramsbottom smokebox front very well. (How often do you see that detail modelled?) Walsall fine scale cast iron wheels, MSC Crailcrest gears and motor unit with power collection by plunger pickups.
