    I'm afraid I haven't built this particular loco but I do have an 850 class Pannier on the bench which was designed by the late Dave Ennis, it goes together very well and I had no issues with it in the build.

    Thanks for following my making threads... that means a lot to me Paul. You may already have found the thread to the 850 class Pannier build but here it is if not.

    Its a cracking little loco that's really all I can say, the etches fit well and the castings are all good, the one thing I would say is that the Dean buffers could do with being replaced with the spring and nutage type as the kit calls for using piano wire as a tensioner which isn't my favourite .
