And with a few washes of Lifecolor dirt followed by a blast of same (thinned with windscreen wash) from my airbrush, Dotti is ready for service.
On the track, she's a bit light. Attempting to haul a Brandbright coach around our local track, she struggled several times. Single axle drive and only one of those means she's best suited to short trains of wagons. Perhaps I need to unearth those weathered "Big Big" tippers!
Maybe a few chunks of lead hidden underneath will help, but in truth some derelin chain and more cogs are required. Not today though. Other projects beckon.
