A weekend at home has seen much progress on the J79.
The chimney and safety valve cover are just posed for the photo I want add more detail before fixing them in place.
The cab is still loose at this point too.
This is the reason that it’s still loose, although at an oblique angle one of the photos that I have seems to show bars on over the rear windows which I have added – suitably distressed too.
Since taking this shot on Sunday morning I have made up the vacuum ejector pipe and soldered the rear of the cab in place.
There is a lot going on for such a diminutive little loco
