Statement from Ixion Model Railways Ltd
143 is starting to take on that iconic Garratt shape now it's got to the stage that the three parts can be posed together.
While psyching Himself up to tackle the valve gear on the rear power unit (see what I did there?) he's been working on forming an ashpan beneath the firebox which more resembles the one on the locomotive as it's currently running on the Welsh Highland.
At this stage the boiler unit and its frames are just resting on the ends of the power bogies and haven't been connected, nor does it have any pick-ups fitted so there hasn't been any test running yet.
Hopefully that won't be too far away once the Walschaerts is in place on the back end.
