The hard working 44 class

Hi all,

For this blog we have a well worked 44 class and as you can see it has done a lot of work over the years!

The model is based on the 44 and 442 class locos, which ran on the Far North Coast of NSW in the late 1980's, and early 1990's.

The weathering may seem over the top, however, if you have seen photographs of the locos that worked the North Coast, they were all in need of a repaint. Subsequently, most stayed this way until their last days with the state rail of NSW.

I always try to weather to suit the years I model. Sadly this poor condition suits the late 1980's 44's and 442's very well.

Until next time,
