Comment from Fred:

"My wife and I  spent a short holiday in England visiting family and friends - my wife is from Yorkshire - and I worked in London twice for several years - I got a bronze medal for my B&A 466-T locomotive  several years ago  at the ME Exhibition , but it's not a patch on the wonderful models on display now".

Fred asked her what paint she used: her comment cellulose - hard to find now and the note on one of 
the models states she spent 4 1/2 months painting it. She's an elderly lady now, but stll keeps going.
