Match the pro­to­type

I’ve built around 12 lo­co­mo­tives out of match­sticks over the last 20 years. They’re ap­prox­i­mately 1:20 scale, and Fly­ing Scots­man (be­low) con­tains about 35,000 matches! I’ve since switched me­dia and now scratch­build in card. So far, I’ve built LMS 4-6-0 ‘7P’ No. 46100 Royal Scot (pic­tured), an LMS ‘Pa­triot’, and a BR ‘5MT’ (all in 1:20 scale). I’m currently work­ing on a BR ‘Bri­tan­nia’.
