John Bradley - Profile

Born in the UK, John started his first loco "Tich" whilst still an apprentice, when he moved to South Africa in 1968, he left his loco behind. In 1980 he started building again and chose Martin Evans' "Jinty" as the loco to build. Without the use of a mill or a lathe he made the frames, stretches and cylinder block from stock utilising only hand tools. He then purchased a "Maximat" lathe and finished it off over the next 3 years.

His next loco was Nigel Gresley's  V2 Class, a 2-6-2 of which the most famous of the class was "Green Arrow"

John's most recent project, started in <date>, is "Ariel" a rebuilt Merchant Navy Class from Keith Wilson's project serialized in the Model Engineer.
