Himself has really been cracking on with the WHR Tool Van.
Its had a darker shade of maroon applied (EWS colour according to Railmatch) and most of the metal work has now been picked out in black and various steps and rails in bright yellow.
I'm told some of the lighter red is still showing through so it may need another coat.
I think it's looking very good indeed, although Himself tells me the finish comes complete with cat hairs. (The moggy was apparently having a rave with his pals in the modelling room while Himself was on holiday)
