Well, it has taken a while but there it is. Number 729 is running and in service. As I have said I find painting and lining difficult but it does look reasonable from normal viewing distances. I am pleased with the way it runs, smooth and with quite sufficient tractive effort for my needs. Watching it in motion I think that the closed doors do make a difference, if I make another tender engine I will repeat that bit.
Anyway a few pictures .
A bit of video, rough but best I can manage.
Hello to everyone I met at the SECC on Friday, interesting exhibition.
