Tom Foster has posted a lovely picture of his Leeman Road layout on Facebook. It harks back to the days when railwaymen took a pride in the job and shows several workers preparing a steam locomotive for its next working.
When I saw it I thought there was something amiss though, photographs were not that colourful in the days of steam, so a couple of minutes playing around resulted in this.
Really going to town on it results in an old photo that has been in the bottom of a drawer for many years.
Is that real or is it a model? I think this shows how good Tom’s modelling skills and attention to detail are.
