Thanks for the info. I tried to do the pickups as per Tony Wright DVD but took it off again as it didn't keep contact with the flanges and as you said there isn't any room as the frames are in the way. I have ordered some phosphor bronze strip to try and have another go. I am using Markits wheels with one side insulated and was thinking off adding a pickup on each of the insulated wheels. I have glued the copper clad board to the underside of the brakes. This is my first loco kit and having great time building it but I cannot thank you for your detailed work I would have been lost. Trying to identify the parts and where they go was my biggest headache. I didn't have any problem with the cab and it bent without the cuts and went together just fine. One thing I didn't do as per the instructions was to fit the two screws used to fit the body (item 42 and item 4) up the other way. I soldered nut in the on the foot plate and one in the boiler so I can remove the body at any time. Had I built as instructed once the boiler door is fitted the body is stuck. Thanks for the help.

I would like to say a big thank you for the build. I started to build a DoG but as you stated the instructions are limited and without your detailed help I would have been lost. One question, how did you do your pickups?
