"From a B12 to a D16..."

This is a Hornby B12. This was a life expired model that appeared as "Stephen the Holden B12" in my youtube series The British Railway Series on several occasions. The motor was dead, the model battered, and it was time for a change. It was replaced by a newer, but similar tooling Hornby B12 model.

This model has been the subject of some severe bashing, to turn it into this at time of writing:

When I get back from my BUCS pentathlon meet this sunday, I will edit this post to show how the project progressed from the 4-6-0 life expired model to the fresh faced and decidedly familiar, but different Edwardian 4-4-0.

Until then! Enjoy the weekend.
