Default A4 locos

I`m doing a bit more work on my fleet of Dublo A4 locos.

Having great fun making my own waterslide transfers for the nameplates.

Thank you Roger, yes the `Merlin` and `Bittern` nameplates are my own work. I decided to put `Sir Nigel Gresley in between just for comparison.

I spend hours rebuilding these old machines and here is a picture of `Merlin` before I started work on it. All my Wrenn and Hornby Dublo rebuilds have a complete strip down including removal of armature - top and bottom bearings - brushes and springs - all damaged/worn parts replaced including rewound armatures and last of all, a magnet re magnetize. Some of my friends think I am mad, but they all agree they do run nice.

Richard.

No, it's an inadvertent reverse loop.
