I finally got around to fitting the buffers, crew and coal to my E4. I also converted the bogies on my second Hornby Gresley to make a nice short branch passenger train.
I'd be tempted by the 3rd coach, possibly seeing if there is something suitable in the Ian Kirk/Cooper craft range may be an LNER 51' Non-Corridor Full Third ?
I'm not sure what the typical make up of train down the Stour Valley might have been.
I'm rather pleased with the way this kit went together, I've now pretty much completed the must have GER locos just in time for Hornby to introduce them all!
