Airfix City of Truro

Recommended Posts

This is another of Airfix's railroad engines. The City of Truro was, reportedly, the first vehicle of any type to exceed 100 mpg. That should have sent some top hats flying! It's OOTB with the exception of the load of coal in the tender and the railing around the boiler. These kits are interesting builds. Not too easy as there are many working parts and many are interconnected and they make attractive displays when completed.

Looks good, Ron.

 

That kit came to Airfix via Rosebud Kitmaster, who had a great series of engines, coaches, and such. I've been focused more on the rolling stock but have all sorts of engines in the stash, with the 8' Stirling making the most "build me" noise.

Good looking job, on an interesting subject (another something I had no idea about--sigh)

That is a fantastic build Ron! I love railroad subjects myself. I'm trying to build a most comprehensive 1/72 scale collection of railroad subjects myself. This is certainly a most attractive display. Way to go!
