    I'm not a DCC user, Larry, but there is a bit of room within the loco body and I've also removed the weight from the bunker (to ensure that I could glue the cab sections back together, although I will probably replace it with some lead in due course).

    Very nice work there CK, from your photographs it looks as though it will make the original look and run better.
