The main project at the moment is this 3 1/2" 2-6-2 Hunslet "Russell". The loco is currently being reassembled and repainted after a strip down with a few modifications added also.

This project has progressed well and the loco has now been steamed and has ran successfully.  It will now be taken apart again to complete the painting and final fitting of all the component parts.
