5″ LNER B1

Here we have a particularly well detailed 5″ LNER B1.  Although ostensibly built to Martin Evans’ Springbok design, the builder has tweaked and altered the model to reflect the full size prototype much more accurately.  The width has been reduced by about 3/4″ and things like the steam pipes on the smoke box are at a more fitting angle and even the wheels are not standard ‘Springbok’.  There’s lots of nice detail too so that the overall impression is of a loco that looks just as a B1 should look!

More details to be added shortly, but for now have a look at the photos to get the idea.  🙂
