A knock on the door today and it is the man from Fedex with a package from the factory.
A bit of work with the snap-off-blade knife reveals two lots of test shots.
The first group is for the 40 class and is mainly samples of the frame with the checker plate pattern now added to the surface area of the footplate plus a couple of minor detail bits. Paint samples will be the next major step in the process.
The second group consists of a AD60 class boiler incorporating the modifications (mainly the twin turbo-generators) for the second run. All modifications are now complete.
