Updating to Stroudley era

Just been looking at photos of Lewes second station, the Reeves ones, and noticed that this photo shows only an upper, full length footboard and a lamp on the top of the birdcage. I am going to alter this build to look like that and so don't have to file holes in the Craven era lower footboard, just cut it off and solder it in place at the bottom of the solebar instead.

Will post another photo when I have completed this.

Just about finished now as you can see; the roof isn't fixed on at all yet and I haven't cleaned any excess solder/muck off at the moment either. Just glued on the castings and made a longer upper footboard from scrap etch and soldered it over the old top footstep, added the couplings also.
Cleaning up, painting and fixing of roof still to do; probably when the weather improves for painting!
