|Wrightscale 16mm Bagnall Excelsiors 2017 - finished at last!|
The model in this iteration is improved. It now sports a blow-down and boiler-level-valve.

|The small size of the prototype is clear. The distance between the footplate and the cab roof is about five feet six inches.|
|Phil Copleston sourced the original photograph that allowed Roy Link to produce a drawing and this beautiful rendered picture.|
The drawing itself came about due to the research of Phil Copleston. The story behind the drawing is well worth reading. I am lucky that others find this prototype irresistable too.
