The DMU in the next picture is an old Lima unit from my son's train set. He bought it second-hand at a swapmeet about 15 years ago, with his own saved-up money. The headboard, fixed temporarily in place with Blutack, was made with the help of Paint Shop Pro from a picture of a Birmingham suburban "special" I helped organise many years ago.
