Quick update.

Revised B3/2 etch design now in hand and to be submitted to etchers with estimated 4-6 week turn round for a further test build of the revised parts.

Meanwhile, the camboxes will be a 3D print. Have seen a first test print which had a dimensional error but otherwise looks OK.

You can PM Graham Nicholas (LNER4479) on this forum, or message me and I'll pass it on, or just post what you want here and I'll make sure it gets to him.

It has gone a bit quiet - I guess Graham has more pressing concerns at the moment!
