Well its taken over 2 years to build got almost totally destroyed after taking a tumble down to flights of stairs and was not an easy loco to build anyway !! Uses an LGB Toytrain chassis heavily modified has has an emotion M decoder in it (Massoth) The tender is completely scratchbuilt bar the wheels . Modelled on Adrian shooters B class with tender .It was built for my other half as she thought it was wonderful !!! Not strictly accurate but I think it captures the look although I have compromised in a lot of ways

As you say not totally accurate, but non-the-less unmistakable.

That's lovely.... I've wanted to do an electric representation of a Darj B for years, still waiting for the correct size of Round Tuit to become available..... did you take any "in progress" photos suitable for a build thread?

Smashing - the original locos (without tender) were incredible performers with a fantastic exhaust note.

A lovely evocation of a marvelous loco

Thanks if you are referring to mine.
Think he may be referring to mine linked on my signature ‘Trip round the Dunnybahn’.
Ah, thanks, I've turned off signatures in my preferences.
