87 update

The power bogies for 87 have taken a leap forward at the Cheltenham works. One bogie is complete and works well, it just needs painting. The other has been stripped back, problems solved and now just needs the valve gear reattaching. Best to paint it too though prior to reassembly, so that is the next job.

The tanks and body are already 95% complete and painted with just minor details and the off White lining to complete.

So we shall certainly gave black, red and blue garratts ready for Sparsholt.
