The ash box
Here we screw together the parts that make up the ash box, then fit this to the chassis.2 of the screws are a real pig to get at, but got there in the end. Also we just test the running of the train. Just to make sure it not sticking anywhere. Mine needed no adjustment. Cheers mick. BigGrin

The couplers
Thanks to all who looked in and left comments much appreciated. Here we put together the front and rear couplers and fit them to the engine and tender. The front one was supposed to bolt on, but my bumper had clearance holes in it, not tapped so had to glue this assembly to the front, then glue in the bolts. Cheers mick. BigGrin
