Canal Tug 'Little John'
« on: November 25, 2020, 09:56:06 am »

While on my daily walks I've watched the 'Canal and River Trust' in action replacing lock gates at 'Blue Bank Lock', Aylestone Leicester -
and thought I'd post pics of their dinky tug 'Little John' - a modern version of the old Bantam?
might make an interesting modeling subject along with its crane barge etc.

There is also a Robin Hood and a Will Scarlet still working. No sign of Friar Tuck.

Would make for an interesting build.
