Hi Colin,
 
Yes, the driving trailer is almost complete, being pretty much ready for the paint shop, but as so often happens, other projects got in the way and it’s sat, well packed, in a couple of boxes, waiting for a chance to get back on the bench!
 
I’ll find a slot to complete it as soon as I can, although the lure of trackwork on the branch line is pretty strong right now.
 
Best wishes for your WC&PR coaching stock projects. Working with Ratio sides is straightforward enough and then there are also the older Triang clerestorys to add to the mix.
 
Best,
 
Bill

Shame on me but I somehow managed to miss this thread :oops:

I am sure that I am not alone in saying that I am looking forward to seeing the next installment of this build.  It appears to have been a few hours work but every minute worth it it seems.

Congrats on an inspiring piece of modelling that we can all feed from.

Barry

Thank you Barry for your kind words about this endearing model of a remarkably little known prototype, even with GWR modellers. In turn, I was inspired to build it by Nick Wood’s version seen on Much Murkle and at an exhibition and I hope to do it justice in the finishing stages.

In the meantime, I’m progressing with the layout to have something to run stock on, as hopefully you will also be able to very soon.

Best,

Bill

Bill thank you for the acknowledgement and I also look forward to you putting the final touches to your Clifton Downs set.

Barry (and others) if you are interested my version of the build was detailed here on YMR back in 2014

Here is some video of the set running on Much Murkle during an exhibition shortly after being put into the roster
