First pair of bogies are now fitted to test the theory and they work exactly as planned (I'm relieved to say!) ......

As a result of this I felt confident enough to cut all of the other bogies and can fit them to the rest of the coaches.

That's an ingenious workaround Peter, well executed as usual.

The first of the Lineside Hut coaches having its official photograph taken on the line. The bogies work very well so I'm happy with the way my surgery went. A small lead flashing sheet (900 x 550) has been glued to the underside of the floor to add weight low-down as the coach is very lightweight, this improves the ride considerably.

This coach will be the first-class accommodation for the Lord of the Manor and his family when travelling away from home. It will be part of the train which incudes the horsebox and Brougham.....
