    A very special Class 43.

    I captured this one this morning on the Plym Estuary heading into Plymouth. It is 43172 'Harry Patch' named after the last survivor of the Great War. I think this is the best livery a Class 43 has ever carried. We must never forget the sacrifices of those that fought in that horriffic campaign, and also all the others that have followed.

    I was tempted by this offering by Hornby but with the Ozzy $ worthless against the pound it the £349 price turned into $800au
    Delivered. Just a little much as would have wanted some passanger cars to go with it as well

    a nice looking set
    Oliver's still has them listed mm!
