Right - I'm calling time on this project, so that I can get on with other aspects of Berger Hall and its rolling stock.
Works photographs have been taken (please make allowance for a complete lack of the sunshine that was such a feature of the last lot of photos) ...
The left side. The black mark at the upper right corner of the lining brushed off (after the photo was taken!). The mounting plate for the coupling is slightly skew-wiff, but it's attached to the push-in coupling and was turned to be straight (after the photo was taken!). And no, the cab rail stanchion isn't bent.
The backhead turned out better than I feared.
The right side. The Rosco lubricator and whistle are 7mm scale brass castings from Gibsons, and the name and works plates are by Narrow Planet - superb etchings as you can see from the Duffield Bank works plate.
On what will be the little bridge on Berger Hall. The imposing gentleman with the splendid moustaches is Graf Heinz von Pitze-Hutt, who has been sent over to Berger Hall by the German Imperial General Staff to assess the suitability of 15" gaiuge railways for military use. In his honour a special train was run with the title 'The Pitze Express'.
As 'Kaffie' neared completion I became increasingly apprehensive that I might b****r the whole thing up, so you may imagine the scene when I discovered a splash of Cyano glue on the right side of the dome at a late stage - the lady at the other end of the village complained about the noise again. I can't understand where it came from - I always put a little blob of the cyano on a spare bit of brass sheet and transfer the tiniest touch to where it's required, so it's just another example of the inate cussedness of inanimate objects.
I very gingerly rubbed the (dried) splash down with very fine glass paper and very gently wafted green paint over the dome, and it seems to have turned out OK - I think it's masked by the glare of the lights in the photos. Phew!
