A little progress on the OO9 train
Thursday nights, for people of a certain age, will be forever associated with Dad's payday, Mars Bars, Top of the Pops and Mission: Impossible. Now I'm a grown up (without a TV), the odd spare Thursday evening is usually taken up with an hour or two's work on some of my 'pet' projects.
Tonight, my little 'OO9' narrow gauge train has received some attention, with the loco now mounted onto its motor/chassis and a few fine details added to the cab ends. Once the roof joint has cured, I'll be adding handrails and other bits to the sides, which will take away the 'boxy' nature of the kit. The top of the boiler needs one or two fittings, plus a chimney, safety valves and whistle. After that, the mini threesome can enter the paint shops, although I haven't settled on a livery for the loco yet.
