C) BRITISH RAIL BLUE (FULL YELLOW ENDS) GLASGOW WORKS FRONT

end

Scottish locomotives are always popular and it is often forgotten that many ‘skinhead’ machines were based north of the border. From the early 1970s, Glasgow Works plated over the front doors in a distinctive style.
Detail combination: Production body, Plated front (Glasgow style), Later exhaust, Boiler fitted, Exposed solebars, SKF axleboxes.
Running number example(s):  24009, 5099
Notes/Period: A great variation for those who model the BR blue period that also provides a base model that is suitable for conversion to the majority of the Tyne Dock locos in their later blue years.
