It's been a little while since the last update, but things have been slowly moving forward. Here is the state of the Cambridge set at the moment.

The set with an LNER built Third standing in for the 61'6" ex-GN Composite which hasn't been started yet. I've not yet tackled the footboards or dynamos on any of these carriages.



Dia. 257 58'6" Brake Third No. 43057. Yet to be glazed and missing the 'Guard' legend as I've run out of decals.



Dia. 78T 58'6" Buffet Car No. 41552. I've still got to glaze this one as well and fabricate the gas tanks.



Dia. 248D Third. Glazed but awaiting final completion.



Dia. 257  Brake Third. Missing the LNER and Guard lettering and awaiting corridor bellows. 



Overall I'm pretty pleased with how these are turning out.

Thank you Alan. If it is such work it is only due to the inspiration of yourself, Gareth, Tim Watson and other who have pushed me this far. :)

I think we all encourage each other with seeing some of the projects we all push on with.

My own workbench has been castrated in recent times - Covid19 lockdown turned it temporarily into an office space. Fortunately, rearrangement is lessening this chaos, and over the coming weekend the office will be relocated and the workbench recovered. Chaotic workload has also started to ease, so a new novelty of extended free time will hopefully finally return.

Then progress to a plethora of projects (including one of yours...) can be made.

Cheers,
Alan

And so you should be Steve this is inspirational stuff and puts my rakes of Mk1s and Gresleys to shame. I was quite chuffed with the detailing I've done on my coaches, but these are something else.

Please keep the updates coming, I look foward to each of your posts.

Cheers
Dave

Unbelievable - it is hard to believe those coaches are N gauge.  Simply outstanding!

Humbled in the presence of a master.

Kind regards

I'd like to think that we all encourage each other as well.

Hopefully, I will get to experience what turning the 'workbench' (itself a temporary arrangement) into an office sometime in the next few weeks. Most of my background security checks have been completed and it is hopefully now just a case of getting a date to start remote training.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with using the additional time you may be getting.  :)
