I've always known Britons to be meticulous restorers! Looks great!

Thanks for the update, Gordon.

When I was a younger man a group of Brits came over to California's State Railroad Museum and gave a presentation on the restoration of what I remember as being the "Flying Scotsman"(?) steam locomotive (1989?); very organised and knowledgeable men.
