Very neat indeed.

A couple of questions though: How widespread was the practice, according to date, of painting brake van handrails white? Were side riding lamp bodies ever red? I ask the latter because I instinctively painted some red but later information suggested to me that they were black.
Bachmann A2 to A2/3: from my thread in Model Railways page 56 to 83, also

Hornby A3 to A1/1 Great Northern: from page 84, in resin from page 108.


Apologies for so many missing images - see page 1 for reasons & possible solution.

From memory - so treat with caution - riding lamps on passenger brakes were red for a time early in the LNER period but then went either black or body colour. Brake van lamps I thought were black.

What red oxide paint have you used? It comes up very brown on my monitor. Tidy job, though.

I did wonder what colour the lamps were, on these vans they were fixed bodies if i understand it right and a lamp was put in from inside.

Not sure on the handrails either but once weathered they won't be so obvious.

The paint was a mixture of Railmatch LNER oxide and some sleep grime i had laying around.

Will paint the lamp bodies black later tonight so thank you for the info folks.

Inner Solebars added and the outer cosmetic ones have already had the rivets punched out:

Image

Cosmetic (outer) Solebars added and the first of the end stanchions side already folded up:

Image

All 4 end stanchions sides added, the front faces now need to be folded up and added, this is a very long winded way of doing things and i would normally have used white metal castings:
