Wasn't happy wit the photo against a whiter background, so here is another (though had to reduce the resolution quite a lot for it to load onto the forum)

I'm with Ray; most satisfactory.

If you photograph it again, use more light. For example, shoot it outdoors or on a table right next to a window (but don't also use a lamp if you do that).

Russ, if I photo it outside I will probably get comments from the neighbours such as " its that wierdo taking pictures of bits of plastic". 
Seriously though, thanks for the advice, I've done the photos outside n the past so should restart doing it again.

Les, I doubt they'd recognize any of that as plastic Smiley
It came out very nice! Kike Ray said, good color, good work.

Good job, Les. I always find those bizarre technical solutions fascinating.

To protect you from your neighbors' prying eyes and petty comments, I have cleaned up your photo digitally so we better may appreciate the model. -- Russ

 Another fine job Les and a most unusual loco it makes a change from the "norm black locos" looking forward to the low-loader now or is it just the beginning for another headache still its worth a slight banging in the head - nothing a swift liquid or two don't cure - if the end result ends up with models on this Forum that continue to such high standards .

e.g Swift liquids = a glass of water !

Thanks Russ, the only cleaning I do needs a mop and bucket!  I noticed that one of the levers connected to the clutch plate had come adrift, now fixed.
Barney the low loader is coming together very nicely, no headaches (so far).  I'll post it when completed.
