We have progress which has to be a record

Decided to have a quick mock up

The locomotive matches the one in the painting.. which is actually the reason I first bought it as its my favorite loco. But anyway just had a spare bit of wood laying around so just placed some track on that and lined everything up. The buffers and the signal box are ones I had laying around but wont be used in the final model/scene. Was just an something to get the project moving forward and to see what I had to work with. The project will finally be the quick in the bum I need to add lights to the carriages and firebox glow to Winchester Castle.

Anyway thanks for reading
