Pantomime Horse

Well, it's the best description I can think of for the rear unit of a Garratt. On its own is it not the locomotive equivalent of the aforementioned theatrical animal?

Being serious, now, you can see that Himself has more or less finished the rear unit on 138 apart from the pick-ups, headlamp and something to represent the lubricator reservoir that sits just below the lamp and in between the sand units.

(And of course coal)

And a very fine job he's made of it too!

I thought perhaps you would also appreciate seeing that it is not just a static exhibit. He shot this brief bit of video to prove that all the wiggly bits wiggle as they should.

Now, onwards with the front half. Giddy up Dobbin!
