I've just broken the tender body from my 231C...




I know it was damaged when I brought it, just didn't realise how much.
Time to get the glue out....

No no no, we have to recycle now to save the planet! It just so happens I have an N scale recycling facility and so for the benefit of the whole planet it really should be sent to me...

That would take some force to have done originally, I suspect it was either dropped, something dropped onto it, or someone stood on it! I'm sure it is in safe hands - judging by the paint visible in the picture I'm sure you can touch it up if there are any chips to the paintwork. Although mixing the exact shade of brown may take some time...perhaps this locomotive would look better weathered! ;-)

You're both out of luck as I've fixed it...



It's the first time I've removed the tender body from the motor chassis and yes, I think it has been dropped in the past. Way too much damage for regular wear and tear.

Touching up the paint is going to be a problem, and because of this I've been surfing the net looking for pics of SNCF locos during the war years for alternative colour schemes...

By the latter stages of the war and immediately after - disgustingly filthy!
