    Hello Nick,

    Unfortunately the EM gauge test track would be of very little use for this locomotive. Although I have been a member of our Society for many years my passion is the 3ft Irish narrow gauge in 4mm scale therefore running on 12mm track.

    The locomotive I am currently modelling is a Ballymena and Larne 2-4-2 compound tank locomotive made by Beyer Peacock. The Midland Railway purchased the B&L with other Irish lines and incorporated them all into the Northern Counties Committee. When the LMS took over the B&L locomotives were repainted in the old Midland Railway Livery and that is how I hope paint my model with the Midland crest and small NCC lettering.

    I enclose a picture of progress to date.

    Thanking everybody for their postings.
