Well done! It's all pretty plausible (at least for my tastes).

 

More importantly, the locomotive looks plausible - something which isn't necessarily the case for real-life Garratts!

I do love the Garratt. Utilitarian maybe but useful machine indeed. I always wondered why the Rev. Awdry didn't write about the 0-10-0 banker from Bromsgrove, Big Bertha. In fiction he could of had it saved and doing the same job banking trains up the hill.

Bertha was certainly a character in her own right! She even has a song written about her :)
