On RMWeb a few days ago Charlie Macginnis (CMAC) did comment that he was suddenly getting a number of files rejected by Shapeways because they appeared to have changed their parameters (again).  He will be aware of your print failure and revisiting the file, I am sure. You can contact him through the Shapeways site so that you are notified when the files have been adapted.

See his post (M0rris) at 10.24 on Tuesday 30 June at this link.  https://www.rmweb.co.uk/community/index.php?/topic/99217-cmacs-big-news-in-little-trains-00-electrostar/page/10/#comments

@Danielmc1 The first and third picure are the right way up but the others are all upside down.

The first 4 are correct for me :confused2:
Very nice curved backscene!

I've solved that by swapping bogies around so that the mating couplings are the same type and working the coaches in specific rakes, assembled in a specific order, with different colour paint blobs on the bogie pins so I can easily see in which order to put 'em on the track.

Genius. Why the heck hadn't I thought of swapping bogies around? :smackedface:

To be sure I have also used a eye dropper with a mix of pva and water

I just need a Mk1 break/second/ coach eastern region to make up a full train.

Have you suddenly gone Irish, Chris? :confused1:

PM sent about the coach ;)

Looks like will be sourcing some as just found the liquid cement, but boards to be fixed first after couple of other jobs. Must admit I do like the kestrel kits range.

I love your photos! Would to get a copy of them all as sometimes when Iím chilling I just enjoy going through photos like that! Gives inspiration too!
.. using dilute PVA and a pipette and letting it soak in from the edge rather than dropping from above.  I was happy with the result.

Yes, agree with ntp, that's the safe sure way of doing it - and indeed the way I did it did it and it worked fine. I used a small, fine spray bottle to mist (from a height) the water (with drop of washing up liquid in) over the dry ballast to do that initial soak. More recently, I have used a 3 (water):1 (PVA) solution from a spray bottle to 'seal' the grass, scatter, bushes etc on the scenic parts of the layout.
