Diesel update

Given the impending arrival of my loksound decoder for Castell Caernarfon, I decided to do an hour or so on it last night, including soldering up the bonnet handrails with handrail knobs and 0.45mm wire(left removable for ease of painting!) and tidying up some of the detailing. The steps and other handrails still need doing, but this shouldn't take long (tonight?).

I also soldered up 3 boxes for Upnor, these sit on the running plate and were duly installed. Many photos were studied and a method for fixing the bullant to the body was arrived at using a 10BA captive nut or two. I also soldered up the very fiddly footsteps, but have yet to install them.
