I just took a couple of pics of the now slightly battered looking last car of the 4cep for a reference for the fronts of the EPB. They share the same jumper cables and a couple of other bits

I have wheels!!

So I'll probably crack on and get the Ratio SR van built pretty quickly as looks a simple kit.. That will be an extra bit of stock for the goods train 8)

Onwards with the EPB!! Just the side handrails to do on these, next will be the steps and bits on the other ends.

Plastic, not sure what type and brass etch. The metal detail bits are made by other companies that I've picked up over the years.

Yikes!! With doing so much on the layout I haven't done any work bench stuff!! I did however take a pic of my workbench as it is now in the garage. This tends to be just where i sit and tinker in the garage though, rather than more detailed modelling.. Kitchen table is still best for that :lol:

I'm with you mumbles, the kitchen table is definitely best. It's warm, comfortable, you can spread your junk everywhere and the tv offers background interest. :D

A TV in the kitchen ? A causes messy eating.
Most of my work is done in the kitchen as well, but supported by a radio only
since the portable CD player failed. A nice radiator alongside me - Roll-on
winter !

Mumbles, I'm out of breath watching the speed of your layout building, not surprised
the workbench has been neglected.
