Steps to finish tender ....

Some of you may have seen my questions in the main forum about rear tender footsteps on this loco. Well, a couple of evening's fiddling with 3mm brass strip and a soldering iron has given me a fair representation of said steps.

Don't worry about the roughened area around the base of the step, it's where I've glassfibred away some cyano overspill rolleyes.gif

 

So all that's left to do is fabricate the tool tunnel and maybe open up the corresponding hole in the tender front bulkhead. Not sure about this as the coal space curves away from the bulkhead back on the Triang tender and is hollow behind, some very careful filing required to get the two holes lined up then thread the tunnel though ....
