Prussian T4 Industrial Loco

Recently built this T4, it is a model by Mr Pirling, I have built a few of his model loco's and enjoy them although sometimes the build instructions when translated from German are not easy to follow so a bit of thumb sucking goes into the build. OOPS a buffer has been broken off.
It is in his standard scale of 1:38
Regards
Owen

Hi,


fine buildt of a fine model. The T4 was not an industrial switcher but a regular shortline locomotive. In Germany or in that time Prussia, switcher type locos are very common on short lines because they can go back and forward without beeing turned on a turntable.

Once again, thank you all for interest shown and comments, Beckychestney, no the coal is cat litter painted black.

Hey, that's an idea.
And that reminds me ...
When I was in to WW2 miniatures games in the 1990s I offered to increase the realism by scenic-ing my units' bases with dirty cat litter so they would smell like guys who had been in the field for a couple weeks without a real shower.
Judging by the groups' reactions, they would have preferred I used miniatures cast from plutonium.

Now, back to seriousness, that is a fine little locomotive.
