At last I can declare this loco finished. I re-did the rust and scratches before spraying with Dullcote, and even remembered to dust with a random selection of weathering powders.
Left side from the front - I even remembered to paint the reostat handle. DG couplers fitted after blackening with Carr's look very neat.
Right side from the rear - definitely a sub-standard repair to that lifting eye, judging from the rust on it.
A close-up of the cab and controls. Heavy-duty cabling from the battery box and reostat, and a volt meter showing a healthy charge. I'm
not sure what the red and green lights show - perhaps they're connected with the charge level too. Ernie has complained that the brake wheel is a bit low down.
Ernie in control, deep in thought - probably thinking what he'd like to do to the person who put the brake wheel down there ....
