Linda Update

Today I decided to paint Linda, a glossy black, I won’t line the saddle tank, cab and cylinders yet; I don’t have the tools or skills.

Anyway, I’ve put some white metal casting pieces I had spare in the tender to weigh it a bit.

(in the above picture the white metal looks a lot higher than what it is, there is about 3mm difference in height between the white metal and the top of the tender)

I then bent a 0.5mm wire to make a coupling to go on the back of the tender and the front of the loco. I also made a 'hook' to connect the loco with the tender; it simply hooks into a hole that a pin went through to hold the old N gauge coupling.
