It is always nice to see a sad old model being given a new lease of life. Those hand rails are very neatly executed. An excellent job.

Thanks for all the kind comments,lads.

Did a bit more on the old girl yesterday.More pottering and tinkering than anything major.Lopped off the smokebox/chimney and removed the handrails.(the chimney wasn't aligned correctly,and gave her a quirky twisted look/I thought the handrails could be improved upon with finer wire.)
  While tinkering at the front,I also decided to make a vacuum brake pipe from the brass wire.
  Addressing the back of the loco,I added a plasticard piece behind the trailing wheels to give it the correct profile.
  General side view:



  View showing added bit behind the trailing wheels;



  Back detail showing new DG coupling.Much more detail to be added here/handrails,lamp-holders,vacuum pipes,etc;



  Front view showing new,finer wire handrails and new vacuum pipe made from old handrail wire;



  I'll post more when I can....this afternoon I'm round at the Mother-In-Law's decorating again!!!:sad:

Cheers for now,John.B.:thumbs
