The new service car is going straight into the paintshop over at Himself's place.

Before it gets a coat of primer, though, he had to cut, fit and paint the glazing.


Yes, paint.

In what, I suppose, was an attempt not to make the new carriage not stand out too much in a rake of standard saloons they fitted windows even in places where they are completely obscured by the internal fittings.

In previous carriages there were solid panels in these spots but on 125 there is blacked out glass instead.

Our solution has been to carefully mask off the areas on the pieces of perspex and apply black paint to the innner surface.

And a metalic grey in the case of the toilet compartment.

I think the effect is going to be very realistic when the body shell is painted.
