Hi Paul,

Sorry, yes it's the loco valences that I am talking about.

Regarding the coal rails being a little wavy, they are so much stronger now that they have half round beading over them but the weak bit is the brackets that hold them to the inside of the tender flares. They have had much straightening after handling during the build - which was why I left them until almost the end before I added them.

I understand Rob, I think in 4mm it is quite difficult to do it without filing the fold line.

As for the handling the of various items, that is something that we have to consider when
writing instructions, but not sure how to overcome it.

Still looks good
