First my Brass N Class has arrived and is just waiting on a sound install
The Parcel from SDS Thanks Steve :D
First for the year, and I think 2014 is looking good for most of us :)
Tony's T335 was brought up to collect the new wagons, so we shunted the first half into the train to see some comparisons.
T335 ready to depart for Bullarto, however the Engineers had a problem with the unpacking as the crane needed some attention. (funny thing, you accept the weathering on the T, and hate the dust on the van roof)
U1621, fresh out of the shops with steel doors fitted
As the crane swings across.... ;)
Nice crisp detail and KD #5 by the looks?
A shot from the crane.
1473 fitted wooden louvre doors.
1473 coupled to 1053 Picture demonstrates the incorrect coupling height we all knew about but for some reason accepted, and it took 5 years of production before Auscision acknowledged and fixed the problem. Also note the head size as a comparison.
