Going Loco

I've done a few bits and bobs to the new 0-8-0 which will be called 'Nancy'. I've changed the pipes to the cylinders for some a bit smaller but they are still quite long, still it actually works by electric so the practicalities don't bother me: if it looks right itis right and it looks ok to me.

It looks  a bit odd still, I think the dome needs replacing or at least the top needs to be more rounded.

Quite pleased but it still has some fettling until I'm happy with it. The chassis runs OK but could be better and it is quite noisy, I'll try some lubrication and see if it will go round the test track for a run in. Its a Fleischmann so it should be excellent and at the moment its only OK.
