    A couple of pics of a dry run. Things have definately moved on in the etching World since this kit was made,but its seems ok. I like to do a dry run with locos in particular as they certainly arent my forte. Hopefully it Will go together ok

    Is that really a length of copper pipe serving as a boiler? One heck of a heat sink that.

    Hi Adam
    Yes it is but I had a word with John Redrup (London Road Models and he can do a brass boiler to length as the Precursor boiler is the same diameter

    And I thought it was a 'Super D' learn all the time.;)
    A real workman like loco with just what is necessary. I will settle for a coal tank to work the interchange to my Colonel Stephens type light railway.
