I am, temporarily I am sure, defeated on this one. I am in the process of fitting lamp brackets for Modelu lamps to as many of my vehicles as I can, usually being guided by photographs or the position of the existing moulding on the model, but am stumped for now with an old Mainline GW Siphon H. Even the redoubtable Paul Bartlett has let me down, having only photos of Siphon Gs, and Google images seems to have no photographs at all of Siphon Hs except the model I've already got.
Does any professor from the University of RMWeb know where the lamp brackets were on a Siphon H. As the vehicle has end doors, I imagine they were somewhere on the upper part of the doors bolted directly to the planking, as there seems nowhere on the edge strapping or hinges for them to go. I suppose I could give up and ensure that the Siphon is never the tail vehicle in a train, but that feels like cheating!
BR GUVs and CCTs, which had a similar end door arrangement but made of steel, have the bracket at the bottom of the drop down panel just above the buffer bean, and the Mainline moulding has a detail here that could be the baseplate for a lamp bracket, so in lieu of better information I will put it there, but it would be nice to have this supposition confirmed or corrected!
Thanks in advance!
