Well I don't seem to have much luck with railway kits lately :roll: The Dapol kit has broken parts :mad:
Image

and a number of missing parts :evil:
Image

I have cut and bent a replacement sign plate :!:
Image

and I'm reconstructing the missing part of the ladder :geek:
Image

All three tanks assembled, there will be a substitute screwdown valve on the grey Dapol one :dummy:
Image

I then had to scratch two vacuum brake cylinders that were missing from the Type 3 box :hithead:
Image
I've used the metal wheels supplied in the Dapol kit on the Type 4 boxing :)

Progressing nicely.
The images of all those figures reminds me of scenes from the original DR Who series :nailbite:

I don't know if I shall use them all Fred, and I'll probably cut the ones I use from their bases and fix them direct to the scenery :think:
