The finish is in unlined black as per the photo of the real thing.
Real coal in the tender and a piece of black plasticard as a fall plate really gives life.
The numberplates are again the 3mm Society numberplate kit, this time lined up through my light magnifier. These really come into their own when trying to get things lined up which, when left to my ageing eyes,aren't always correctly aligned.
With the chassis run in another loco for Hennock and more often for Teignford.
