Billy - A Project

 

The Elmtree Line workshops were asked to carry out some work on a steam locomotive which amongst other minor jobs included a full repaint from green to black, white being used to pick out certain features.  A Summerlands Chuffer.  And a full upgrade to 2.4Ghz radio control.

 

The locomotive "Billy" was delivered to the workshops looking like this.....

 

        

 

Work then started dismantling the loco and cleaning it ready for its new paint scheme....
