Hi Alex, highly impressive work. My choice would be the 3rd then the 2nd of the colour schemes shown.

Hello all,

The model is now complete, apart from a few handrails on the cab sides, and is ready for painting. I think the handrails really add some depth to the model!







I am also still undecided on the livery for the loco and therefore have drawn up some colour designs. What do you all think would look best? Whilst some of the liveries are based on prototypical colour schemes, some are less accurate. However, as long as it looks good and realistic, I am not too concerned about complete accuracy considering how rare the prototype is!



I look forward to hearing your thoughts!

Cheers,

Alex

As I understand it she was a rebuild of the The Reid-Ramsey Turbine-Electric Locomotive, the only colour representation was the following.  My suspicion is she will follow the same colour scheme being primarily black.

Hello all,

Many thanks for your replies. I am still yet to decide on a livery but, although they are unprototypical, I am leaning towards the grey, blue or olive green liveries. In the meantime, however, I have built a box to transport both the Reid-MacLeod and Leader locomotives:







Cheers,

Alex

The box is an excellent idea, Alex.
