Dear fellow GN 15 modellers,
I live on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada. There is an old copper mine just south of Squamish that used to be one of the biggest copper mines in the Commonwealth. It's now open as a museum and the following series of photos show a North British (Glasgow) battery mine loco on display outside.
Side profile - obvoiusly designed for low height shafts !
3/4 profile - inspiration for rust effects.
Makers plate, with serial number. I believe this loco was made in 1957 - the year of my birth. Serial no 27720.
Front view, note number plate,
Another front view
Rolling stock detail
The mine closed in 1974/ I hope these photos inspire some of you to convert the photos into a model. The weather here in this part of Canada can bet wet - I think the loco has stood up very well to the damp conditions - those of us who like weathering should have a field day.
