Second Terrier gets rail wiper pickups

I have now added rail wiper pickups, fabricated from 0.2mm phosphor-bronze sheet, as fitted to number 8 'Freshwater'. This has improved pickup no end. I still need to permanently fix the con-rods, add 'stay-alive' capacitors and couplings, as per 'Freshwater' before I can give it a proper test on the layout.

Here is a view of the wipers that I added to number 8 'Freshwater':

Keep trying. 'Freshwater' took me a long time to get right (not to speak of other loco chassis I have tried to build over the last 25 years that all ended in failure). This one has gone better as I managed to avoid most of the errors I made with 'Freshwater'.
