Displacement activity

To avoid starting to rip St Ruth to bits I've been building/modifying a new/old loco.

I've had a ROCO 0-6-0 tender loco for a few years now and had sort of Anglicized it but I'd never been happy with the result and my passing loop is too short to use tender locos so...

Change from this:

To this so far:

I've started the spoiling by painting phase now and I've chosen Dark Angel Green which I think will look quite smart. More to follow.

I think the tender is destined to be a snow plough, although snow is a very rare thing on the Isle of Stoner.
