A really neat bit of remediation. It's hardly noticeable.

Fitting some fittings
Boiler number on a brass plate
and also stamped on the dry back head
and a crown level plate, just for kicks and giggles.
Trimming fibre washers and also added various copper shim sheets to the store's drawers for making washers.

That is some very impressive pipework and associated gubbins - it looks the biz :thumbup:

Thank you everyone for your kind comments. Much appreciated
I am pondering my next project after this build and I am thinking I am going to have a go at a 4 1/2" scale Foden steam Lorry before I tackle my magnum opus 5" magnum opus loco build before I die.

Does mean that your 5" loco is not only going to be your magnum opus but is also going to be named Magnum Opus 😁?

It could be named as you suggest. That would be fun. I like the name Cynthia because it is what a few of us nicknamed the full size #253 that resides in Gympie dismantled and awaiting 2 million god coins to steam again.
I like the idea of the freedom of movement with a steam lorry. A break from railway matters, full size and miniature.
