Well thanks for that, it was built for practical purposes!
There are some clues in that post though.

I can certainly see the clues, and they are indeed very useful.

I wonder if they did the original drawings before they built the real thing.
The same thing must apply to the Bugatti nose on the loco.

Well, hurray and huzzah. I bet you're pleased. It seems a long time since I last saw it at the Plant 150.

Now then, where and when can we have a ride in it?

Having seen the model in the flesh. All I can say is if the 1:1 scale version is on a par with it, wow :wink: ! As the model is quite a work of art in itself........

Wasn't that 1719 at the Plant?

No idea yet. There is a clue as to what's happening in my earlier post.

Very hard from where I'm sitting!!!!

Is there a website which I can look at the finished carriage?

And more importantly, once the current situation is past, where can it be seen operating?

Many thanks

Cold, very cold!
I think I am safe to say there will be a feature in an upcoming Steam Railway magazine but I'm not sure how soon.
