Model Railroading, boats and oil painting,
- 6 Jul 2013
Yes in a cow shed,we went to a farm on Saturday as eldest grand daughters wanted to go and see the lambs,I really really didn`t want to go but duty called,my son took his dog so when they all went into the shed to the animals granddad stayed outside with the pup,this is an old dairy farm that has been transformed into a shop and craft center with the shops etc in the old farm buildings,cow sheds and so on,me standing around noticed a sign for a model shop and so when they reappeared it was against the law not to take a look,suprised at what a well stocked shop it was albeit in the smaller scales so I wandered around,thought there may have been some plasticard or some other useful bits,,,,,,,,then on a shelf I noticed a large red Big Hauler box,faded to purple on one end and the clear plastic turning yellow so worth a look,,,,,,,,inside was a brand new mint factory fresh little Colobian 2 4 2,it still had the smoke fluid bottle full and spare couplings in the sealed bags,marked up at £150 down to £100 and when I asked what she would take for it she said £80,and yes I took it home,out of the box ITS in perfect condition,I assume it all works fine but as yet not tested it and of course will need the oilcan around it,some items need changing,the timber load in the tender is terrible looking and something needed to be done about the open wheeled rear pony truck as to me looks like an add on and just not right to my eye and a possible repaint out of the WP&Y livery but I like the colour,no idea how old she is but gone to a good home,I`m glad I went now!!!
