"Staff Competition Entry...Update 2"

The W2 has had its tender modified and painted, with a second tender being made up from two old railroad tender bodyshells, stuck together, and modified accordingly. I thought I'd put a second tender on it to be really wacky (^_^)

The colour of green doesn't show up well in the photographs, but I like it enough that I am planning on keeping it as it is. Overall, the big green machine has clocked up about thirty hours of trials since I finished the chassis modifications, doing a turn of five hours running today with a short six coach train. It's running so smoothly that I am hoping when the contest kicks off good and proper with the "exchange trials" that my luck doesn't run out!

Until next time.
