A little bit more work this afternoon.
The tender had the front headstock removed to shorten it a bit, and 1mm (or near offer) removed from the bogie pivots to lower it. Its now looking a bit better to my eye.
Unfortunetly the ladder on one side perished (I'm just so rough) and so both were removed. I have some old etched ladders from somewhere so these will replace the RP ones.
Next onto the loco I'll add in a cab and some details, and also the tender footplate will get some attention.
