Visited the southern works yesterday and have much to report:
Castell Caernarfon has come on very well and just needs a few details like the upstand handrails, vac pipes and lights adding. cool eh.
138 has also had a lot of extra detailing added, especially to the smokebox saddle and tanks. The headlights look superb (amended versions from the 140 kit I just bought) and I’m really pleased with the oil tank representation and the steam pipe covers which look great. A bit more to do, but this loco should easily be ready for expong.
I left Dad with the 14 washout plugs to install too!
