Two county SAR update

Painting of the funkey in Gloucestershire has progressed very well indeed:

 Funkey latest 001Funkey latest 003 

 Funkey latest 004Funkey latest 005

and in Warwickshire, I’ve been drilling holes in the B wagons to take the tiny hand (foot?) rails to finish off the B wagons (and the ballast wagons need 8 handrails too).  My 0.45mm drill however was very difficult to use in the pin vice as I couldn’t rotate it fast enough to ensure the drill didn’t get stuck.  After a few attempts at putting this tiny drill bit in various drills etc I thought of putting the actual pin vice in my bosch drill – brilliant – works perfectly. 

70 odd holes drilled out.
