I am in the closing stages of putting together a Parkside GWR Python CCT (kit #37). Unlike the instructions for the pair of LMS CCTs and the long LNER CCT there is no direction to file the top of the buffers flat to give clearance for end loading.

Should the buffers be filed flat or did the GWR just leave them as round?

Here's a photo of one of the LMS CCTs. You can just make out that I have filed the top and bottom of the buffers flat.

>No Picture David
Try again. My ISP is a bit "funny" about supplying my pictures just after I have posted them. Anyway, you've seen it already

>The photos I have of GWR Pythons all show round buffers.
Thanks David. I'll take that.

There's a link on the Forum to Paul Bartlett's British Wagon photographs. Unfortunately the Python is not among his "captures". There are quite few LMS CCTs, though. I didn't turn up any photos on Google either. Just the fact that there's a 1919 vintage Python at Didcot.

Thanks Bizerba. That photo shows round buffers too.
