Description

How (not) to Paint a Locomotive

Christopher Vine spent six years building a seven and a quarter inch gauge model of an LNER B1 class engine with the unlikely name of Bongo. He then set about achieving the best possible paint and lining finish for his locomotive and his experiences form the basis of this book.

The many trials, tribulations and disappointments are related, together with his solutions. When the job was finished, people admitted they had hardly dared to visit him during it because of the endless tales of woe and disaster – paint running, dust, insects, dropping the tender, water in the air supply…..

Click on the cover image for a photo of Bongo’s immaculate front end.

Christopher Vine, 2006, 166 pages. Hardback.
