After running 4840 I realised that an update on backdating it and its partner in crime 4812  had not been done so as this could be the last post for the year I had better correct the situation.

The fletner vent removal has been covered in a previous post. Straight top buffing plates had to be sourced and Joe at Casula Hobbies came to the rescue with a  packet of brass ones so 2 packs were ordered which arrived very quickly.

Removal of the original ones is a bit tricky and care must be taken not to damage the front of the loco as the replacement shafts are a bit larger in diameter. Care was taken to drill out the housing by hand using a 3mm drill  then paint and glue in place the new buffing plates.

I would like to wish  everyone a Merry Christmas a Happy New Year,                                  Happy Hogmanay and again Happy Modelling.
