The Santa Claus badge on the front is a nice touch.

Thanks for nice comments Richard/Duncan. The local miniature railway adjacent to our pond is holding a SANTA EXPRESS for the children's Christmas tomorrow. I will take Jerry there for them - hence the SANTA image - but it will be changed afterwards!

Now struggling again with Youtube to get the wagon on film! Watch this space!

That isn't coal in the truck !   Looks like whisky barrels  O0 ;) :-))  Some of the whisky distilleries  had their own "pugs" to shuffle wagons about.   Nice job. How about a simple coupling with a teacup hook and a ring, check B&Q racks.   It`ll stop too much sway and avoid jack-knifing.

Excellent Nemo, it looks exactly like one of the Thomas engines from the books I remember when I was a kid.  :-))

For the next repaint may I recommend a suitable livery %) From the heart of the Speyside distillery country on the Keith to Dufftown Railway.
