After much messing about....

...the nightmare carriage now has a roof! This required taking off the painted ends, stripping them, reattaching them to the sides at the new height, moving the captive nut assembly lower, altering the chassis, removing and reattaching the buffer beams and finally adding the roof. phew! Thank goodness that's over.

Pictured next to the considerably easier carriage that wasn't painted before I needed to fiddle with it.

and then I finished two more carrs - FR 113 (which has run on the WHR for a few seasons, so is relevant) and 114 which is a pure FR carriage.
