P1 meets Mk1

LMS Period 1 Third Open 7828 has been residing outside the LMSCA shed at Rowsley for a few weeks to enable the chassis to be cleaned and painted. This has also been a good test of its waterproof qualities, and despite some heavy downpours no leaks have been detected – apart from self-made ones when testing the toilet water system. Its being outside has enabled BR Mk1 Restaurant Car (RBR) E1970 to have a repaint and emerge as M1970. Today the┬áM1970 was coupled up to 7828 to do the shunt required to get it back in the running set, and I must say they looked well together!

    Looks amazing! Really great work folks. Did you get chance to try the two gangways together?
