Hello Gerold,

I am from Adelaide, South Australia, home of the 900 class,
built at South Australian Railways, Islington Workshops,
using English Electric components.

They were a great locomotive.

Yours is certainly a banged up model,
it may or may not concern you, especially as you have painted it,
but there is something wrong with your nose/wind screen area,
it should be flatter.

I thought it may have been camera angle,
but the mis-shape appears the same in all the photos.

Those models are something of 'holy grail' status down here,
when they come up for sale they go for ridiculous dollars,
and you bought one in Vienna.


I don't have one but know a few that do.
Are you after any particular detail photo or just general photo's?

You are correct about the silver colours,
the flat side panels and doors were Stainless Steel,
and the nose V was painted silver.
I have a resin body kit to build up,
but alas, no brass version.
