My customer took umbrage last week when I described him on these pages as demanding.
Well, you can read through this post and decide for yourself!
As I have mentioned before the interior of the Disco Car is pretty much empty but there are a few fixtures which remained such as the cabinets which enclosed the gas heating gear at the top end.
These were added when the carriage was first refurbished for the push-pull train.
In Disco Car configuration the top of the low cupboard was used to support one end of the shelf upon which the DJ's decks were placed, while the other end rested on the window ledge.
Naturally my client wanted this included as part of his model and I obliged.
Was he happy? Was he hell!
Some snaps, like that above, were taken and emailed off for approval and back came a list of faults so lengthy that the only option was to rip it out and do it all again.
This time, thankfully, he was satisfied.
Customers, who'd have 'em, eh?
