And work starts in earnest on the next T9 - splasher tops and pipework painted, now on to the lining:




I'm loathe to be thought of as being in the rivet-counter camp, but in this case I might have to risk it. That doesn't seem to look much like Maunsell Green, especially not when comparing it to the previous T9...  :worried:

The Union Mills T9 301 was painted in Malachite Green which is much brighter. Maunsell Green is more of an Olive colour

Pipped me to the post on that, Bob!

Never could get meself to like the Malachite green so delighted with the Olive version fettled so nicely in Gideon's excellent pictures.  :)

Some interesting T9 history on Wiki although not being anything like an expert, I couldn't promise the content was complete or 100% accurate.

Just been reading that Dave. Looks like the T9 was only painted Malachite Green experimentally. Not even sure it was lined.
No matter, I beiieve this loco may be mine and is destined to have a name plate fitted 'Gemma' in memory of my greyhound Gemma who had to be put down last year.
So.. not too bothered about prototypical accuracy. I'm happy to let Gideon do his magic on it.

Hope you enjoy your T9 when it arrives.

This one is indeed yours, @austinbob ! :) Since we're not being strictly prototypical on this one, you have a choice of white or yellow lining... whichever you think would look better with the malachite green! :)

Go for the yellow lining Gideon - I'm sure you'll be glad of the change in colour scheme after all those other T9's.
My railway (under construction) is a preserved railway so this T9 can be whatever it wants.

O e thing to remember, the UM model is only correct for some of the T9s numbered in the 300-338 series which were fitted with 6 wheel tenders from 1925, for details see

http://www.semgonline.com/steam/t9class_dat.html

The 300 series had wider cabs and splashers than all others and 8 wheel tenders when built, in LSWR days the narrow cab ones had 6 wheel tenders up to about 1902 then received 8 wheelers.

The same page linked above also has shed allocations for the class.

For a Watercart tender you could use the Langley S15 with Fleischmann tender drive (as in my sig below), or Worsley works do an etched body, but I've not found a suitable drive to fit, the Fleischmann one is too wide for the WW body

Thanks for the info Mike. My UM model is 301 which, in reality I believe, never had a 6 wheel tender and was never painted Malachite Green.
For my purpose it doesn't really matter. This is very much a one off special for me...

According to Bradley, the real 301 managed to avoid any kind of repainting, relining, or even relettering until it received BR lined livery at nationalisation. Still, since it was withdrawn in 1959, you've had plenty of time to get it restored in a heritage 'wrong livery' scheme ;)

I do like the Jubilee in experimental green.

Can you tell us a bit about the paint and lining source please?

Thanks! :)

I've done a couple of Jubes and a Patriot in this livery now and people seem to like them (even @paulprice after a little while!)  ;)

They really did appear in this colour - see proof!: http://www.ebay.ie/itm/PHOTO-LMS-JUBILEE-CLASS-BR-No-45565-VICTORIA-IN-APPLE-GREEN-EX-WORKS-DERBY-1948-/222046342302

This is the exact loco I'm modelling at the moment.

The lining is all from Fox Transfers - splendid ladies and gents that they are - and the paint is simply Humbrol green gloss enamel (No.2) with a little yellow mixed in to lighten it and stop it being too "blue-y".

The Patriot looks great and is not quite as bright in real life as in some of the photos.
Here is a photo I posted a while back of the Patriot.



Its a beautiful looking loco. :) :beers:
