11th December, the day before 17101's first run.

Well it wasn't quite finished but it has taken its place in the Santa set.  These pictures were taken on the morning of Friday 11th December, just prior to it being shunted out into the set.  I don't have any outside pictures yet for two reasons, one I was driving the shunt engine and two, it was snowing heavily.  The main outstanding tasks are the painting of the Guard's in-swinging doors, finishing the lining and the application of the number and lettering.

The exterior of the passenger end, shining in the flood lights.

Another view from the luggage van end.

Another view, this time the passenger end opposite corner.

A compartment finished.  The seat cushions have been re-upholstered as have the head rests, the seat backs are original.  The curtains, carpet ad tables are all new.
