My two shays are progressing well, so I thought I would show you what I have done.
I thought I would add railings to number 1s bunker, this involved cutting the flair (?) off.
Backwoods parts added to the bunker ready for the paint shop.

Number 3 is looking good. It now has a westinghouse pump and condenser fitted.

After fitting these, (and a bit of weathering) I thought I would give it a test run. To find one of the rear trucks gears had split :
Luckily I have a spare one, but I dont know if I should fit it or try and fix the current one.
