Project 1 – Renum­ber a lo­co­mo­tive

Model Rail (UK) - - Workbench -

Gen­er­ally speak­ing, I’m not one to han­ker for a par­tic­u­lar run­ning num­ber. As long as it’s the class I want, in the liv­ery I want, then I’m happy. How­ever, there are a cou­ple of hon­ourable ex­cep­tions, par­tic­u­larly Gres­ley ‘B17’ No. 61666, named after two-time Euro­pean cham­pi­ons Not­ting­ham For­est. Sadly, Hornby hasn’t yet of­fered one of its new ‘B17s’ with that name, choos­ing in­stead, No. 61665 Le­ices­ter City. Creat­ing my favourite ‘B17’ is a re­ally easy process thanks to Olivia’s Trains re-nam­ing/renum­ber­ing packs. Suit­ably armed, com­plete with a ‘B17’ from Rails of Sh­effield, I set about turn­ing a ‘Foot­baller’ into the team for me.

To com­plete the renum­ber­ing, this is what I used: or­di­nary ve­hi­cle T-cut, clear and matt var­nishes, plenty of cot­ton buds, a cock­tail stick, tweez­ers and a paint­brush. Make sure you have a bin close by so you have some­where to throw the used cot­ton buds.
