    It's fairly easy to plug the holes with some tight fitting wire and then file it flush. I did that in the 14xx boiler and I bet you can't see the repair :D

    I really gotta get myself a pillar drill of some kind...

    74 holes drilled by hand (and still more to go).. My fingers hurt !!  :laugh:

    I bought one of these a few years ago (half the price then) and it is more than adequate.

    Oh bugger it... :headbang:

    They're there on the later engines, but I'll have to fill more holes. I guess it saves me 12 rivets!

    Do you think the lid of that box (which I would imagine is access to the pony truck gubbins) opens? I can't see a handle anywhere, and I'll probably model it openable if it does. Come to think of it, that makes sense now. Maybe the rivets on 9000 are absent because it was on trial early on, and that area needed to be accessible regularly to check for wear, rather than later engines where it was only accessible at service?

    Itching to get back to the workbench at some point next week.... Nearly ready to attach the front footplate to the valances... And then it'll start to look like an L1... with any luck!

    Could be. A photo of 67703 (ex-9002) in Locomotives Illustrated 120 shows that loco with the rivets c1957. I think you've still got my RCTS for the N7s - is there anything on the L1s in there?

    Hi Adrian, Colin (Eastside Pilot on here) sent me some pictures of L1's hence why I put the rivets in on the top row of the front pony truck cover. I have had a look at the RCTS which I must get back to you along with the N7 Yeadons (which is safe and still in perfect condition I might add :D ) and there isnt anything in there specifically regarding any differences on prototype 9000.

    Hi Pint..

    Are there any shots of the front footplate area from a medium to high angle of 9000 or the LNER built L1's ? Are you at WMHQ tomorrow?

    Thankyou!

    You might as well hang onto the books pro tem, at least until you've completed the builds anyway, as I've no desperate need for them here for the mo.

    Reading Locos Illustrated #120, it seems 9000 spent a little time at Norwich and Cambridge in early 1946, then returned to Stratford in February. It then went to Doncaster for a repaint with the full LNER lettering for an exhibition in Ipswich in June,but was quickly dispatched northern England and Scotland until Feb 1947. The main thing is it was in the vicinity of WM in June '46, but no heavy weathering for this one!

    Yes, but not 9000 - very best is a full page close-up shot of Darlington-built 67711 on p79 amongst some others and No - but if you were at WMHQ today no doubt you took the opportunity to check PJH's 'club' copy? If not let me know...
