NER Brake Van Progress
The North Eastern brake van which I have been working on recently is now ready for painting! Steps are now in place, which are hopefully an improvement over the moulded originals - they should prove more robust too. I have fitted whatever brake gear can be seen, which is very little really - safety loops for the brake hangers will be fitted after painting I think as they will make removal of the wheels a little tricky.
The final parts required will be the two roof pieces for which I have 15 thou brass sheet ready and waiting!
