The smallest and fiddliest repair I think I've ever done!

The tiny rivet holding the upper valve gear had broken on this Fleischmann 2-10-0 (centre of pic). Replaced with a jewellery pin and "washers" cut off the broken valve gear of a Farish B5, after many attempts using different methods and failing, and lots of swearing/supergluing my fingers together!

But it works!

I promise you, this valve gear was beyond repair - otherwise it would have been adorning one of my Fives!!

Very nice, I've got one of those somewhere that my son gave me some while ago, will have to see if I can get it working and commission you to give the body a makeover like this.
