      I’ve not taken apart my Oxford Rail N7 and I don’t have either a SE Finecast or one of Fred’s N7s, to be able to comment. I have a Connoisseur Model’s N7 and the Oxford Rail chassis probably would fit. Oxford Rail’s N7 runs very smoothly and given the weight of the loco body, easily hauled 18 bogie carriages around my layout.
       
      Oxford Rail’s round-topped boiler version of the N7 is due out in the next few weeks and again will sell for about £90, so I think if I was you I’d dispose of the kits and buy an Oxford Rail model! I’m expecting it to be of the same quality as the GE version, which is very good only needing a few tweaks, which I’ve published in the GERS Newsletter and on RMWeb. Albeit, I still see people running the loco with vacuum pipes and extra bit of pipework down RH side of the boiler, which should be removed! Which reminds me, I still haven’t got the top feed valves which need adding.
       
      Looking forward to seeing you on the 1st.

      I’ve got something called Repetitive Strain Injury. It’s effecting my typing. But I have help, and with the exercises etc., I should be ok.
      I just have to type much slower, with flat wrists. 
      As for modelling that’s  something which I will work on in due course. Strengthening exercises will hopefully help with that too.
      It will maybe be a couple of years before it gets better.

      For some reason I cannot explain, today I left the house with the solo intent of taking a photo 60103.

      Happy New Year
       
      So lets have some content, showing what I've been working on over the last couple of weeks. First is a slight deviation from the goal of a working crane lorry, courtesy of my old Scania crane lorry with the working ramps - which has pretty much been in its box ever since I built it because it never really drove very well without a load on the back. So I thought I'd recycle it, as I had several uses for the components. I used the bed with the working ramps, the flashing orange beacon and the receiver, to create a beavertail lorry on the Mercedes chassis - and the flatbed from the Mercedes plus the rear wheels from the Scania to make a drawbar trailer. Got all that?
       
      Here I am testing it with a hastily-put-together loading ramp and my Network Rail Land Rover Defender:
       
       
      then I had steering axles and the proper 7mm German motor/gearbox left over, so I used them to finally finish the Scania fire engine I'd had for a while:
       
       
      I've also made another Transit van, this time in the instantly recognisable DPD livery, excellently reproduced by Shedring Hobbies:

    • PEPPA PIG AND THE SPOILT BREAKFAST
      Daddy Pig was sat at the breakfast table hidden from view by the latest edition of the “Porcine Gazette”, house journal of the Hogs’ Own Guild, or HOG for short. From behind this august publication there emanated a succession of grunts, squeaks and snorts of indignation.
