Hows the 1:1 going?
How hard is this!

IT'S FINISHED!

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
Anywhere that hires it, is my understanding..

Cold, very cold!
Yes, we know Whitby is cold, but can we see the Observation Car there?

Not only cold but foggy, so you won't see it there. You could consider a hop to the south and it might get warmer and easier to see.

Wasn't that 1719 at the Plant?
I honestly can't remember - it was part rebuilt into the original shape (very much like your avatar). I thought one was in rebuilt form and the other original, or have you rebuilt the rebuild?

The only time that has been seen in public was at Barrowhill.

Lockdown has provided excellent cover for moving a very distinctive railway vehicle about the country.

1729 should now be in Margate.

The next issue of Steam Railway magazine may be of interest to carriage and LNER fans.

You're not the first to say that.
