Created 5 March 1999
The models are built to 4mm scale P4 standards (18.83mm gauge) from Woodham Wagon Works kits. The kits comprise a set of whitemetal castings and require wheels, couplings, axle guards (W-irons), paint and transfers to complete.
I have painted them in the early lavender grey livery with the "illiterates" symbol, as they would have appeared in the 1870's and 1880's.
Unfortunately, these kits are (only temporarily I hope) out of production.
