In possibly the least exciting blog update ever published on RMweb, I've added some brakes to the E1.
There weren't any with the kit so I selected some more or less suitable ones from a Mainly Trains etch
of Southern brake gear types. These are supposedly LBSC tender brakes but they look about right
based on photos, having a curve to them. Railwells saw me coming back with some nice brass clack
valves, as well as a copy of David Maidment's book on Maunsell 4-4-0s, which will help with figuring
out the placement of pipes and so on, especially on the fiddly side. Onward and upward!
