BW 2nd Class Coach

I have finally got around to building one of Steam Era's W coaches, this one a BW. This is an interesting kit that goes together nicely, and I think the use of nylon thread for chassis bracing is ingenious and works very well. Changes for Glenburn's era weren't too significant - I scribed in the mirror surrounds above the windows, added buffing plates and supports and screw link couplers. The handbrakes weren't fitted until later so I left these out. One change I didn't make was to remove the anti-collision posts at each end as these are near-hidden by the corridor connection, and I would likely make more mess than benefit trying to remove them. The only other change is positioning and type of lettering.
