some­thing old, some­thing new, some­thing bor­rowed…

Model Rail (UK) - - Opening The Box -

The multi-mil­lion pound project to build a new Gres­ley ‘P2’ 2‑8‑2 has in­volved a lot of scratch­build­ing – al­most £2.5m worth so far. How­ever, this vi­sion of what No. 2007 Prince of Wales will even­tu­ally look like – cre­ated for the cover of sis­ter mag­a­zine Steam Rail­way (issue 488) – was helped along with a lit­tle ‘kit‑bash­ing’. The draw hook was bor­rowed from ‘J72’ No. 69023, un­der over­haul next door in Dar­ling­ton, and the lamps came from the Gres­ley So­ci­ety’s ‘N2’ No. 1744. NICK BRODRICK/SR
