I found this, my only piece of O gauge stock, in Mum's attic whilst nosing around up there last week. Its a Peco kit for a 16T mineral with bottom doors. I built it over 15 years ago at a guess. If I remember correctly the kit went together extremely well. Buffers and drawgear are sprung, as is the running gear with working springs moulded in a soft plastic. As I haven't posted anything in this blog for a while I thought that I'd photograph it and post the pics here. And here they are;

Back to some more recent modelling soon....
