Yes, the V-Class is my favourite WAGR engine.
My grandfather spent plenty of time driving them, and is featured in a large pic checking over V1206 in the book “In Praise of Trains In Australia”
An Aster V-Class would be awesome, albeit at 1:24 if the gauge proportions were maintained.
In the meantime I’ll just have to squint at my green 4501 from a distance
I’ve just hit a purple patch with a few new acquisitions, one being a C11, but I’m still ironing out a few transport difficulties, so I won’t get too excited just yet.
I’ll be sure to post a few pics of the new arrivals if / when they come in
