The idea to build Severn came from a friend on RMWeb scratch building a model from an old drawing that was originally published in a 1960's edition of Model Railway News. I have always fancied having a go at scratch building and this seemed like a good place to start. It doesn't fit in with any of my modelling period or interests and was a purely done for fun and to see if I could.
Here are a few shots of her when she was finished.
I finally plucked up the courage to have a go at adding some of the lining that is evident in some of the photos that I have of Severn.
