The finish line is in sight on the DZ project.

All the wee brackets which hang below the frame to stop the drop doors dropping too far have been fabricated and glued into place. I say all, but over the years the WHR's wagons have lost a few here and there. So the good news was there were less to make, but the bad news was lots of time spent pouring over photographs trying to identify which wagons had which ones missing in which places.

With that sorted it was time to turn them over and add some brake gear detail - the vacuum cylinders, reservoirs and V hanger are very prominent on the DZs.

And with the arrival of the etches the hand brake wheels have been added too - one at each end.
