Shown on John Batemans layout, Wadebridge was this excellent model of an ex-LSWR 700 class loco, 30697.
This is quite convenient because I aquired a kit of this type from Worsley Works.
Supplied as an etch, it is up to me to source the castings, motor, gearbox and wheels .
The wheels are those obtainable from Peter White, castings from John Bateman and the Society shop.
I struck lucky in buying a couple of Mashima 9/16 motors from Secondhand Sales and most of the items needed to complete the model. No boiler is supplied with this 'Scratch Aid Kit' but brass tube is readily available.
