Hi Guys.
Just a couple of photos of my 'Beast' in service.
I've modified it a bit to take it back to an earlier style to go with the period of the rest of the layout by adding the tool boxes each side of the engine, moved the headlights from the grill to separate supports on the frame, reshaped the radiator , added an exhaust pipe in the roof, and given it a weathered look.
Working on suitable couplings now so it can do some useful work.

Looking Good Noel, When I eventually get mine it will be in the Green with white stripe as currently stored at Calvi but not quite so run down.
Just need a suitable wagon to go behind it as well.

Thanks Ivan, I had the e-mail this morning saying it has just been shipped.
