I think this must be one of the oldest models Matchbox Yesteryear made, and one of the smallest in scale, but still an important model for a collector. I personally didn’t like the original colours, I think this looks a lot more convincing, but like a long distance cyclist I think it should really have a tender behind. I sprayed the chassis and smokestack black, the top of the cinder catcher is polished to a silver finish while the body is blue with a black roof. The top of the condenser, bell and the other thingy are painted silver, the boiler door has been polished, the wheels have been sprayed silver; the free display box uses some original graphics but it’s something I made up and not a reproduction.
