Ex GWR 2-6-0 Mogul
The body has been sprayed black as this one will be unlined black 7316- from a picture in a Bradford Barton book
Many things still to do- too many to list here!
The chassis runs well under the body but a couple of shorts occur at various points (no pun intended!).
So out with the file to pare down the cylinders slightly, tighten up the pony truck as it has too much front to back movement. The front frames needed the most drastic action as the pony wheels touched them each time a curve was encountered.
So-time to paint the chassis, add coal to the tender and loads more before 7316 is ready for display.
