The new couplings have been welded on, just need to purchase some more off the shelf tractor pins. As this wagon is made to the same chassis width as the new box/guards van and future coach, it was thought it would be nice to run it with these one day. In order to keep the brake system working a through air pipe has been fitted so if the wagon is between the brake van and the loco then an air connection is still maintained. It doesn't however brake the wagon as it isn't required on such a small item.
The whole thing has been given a new coat of primer ready for the new paint job to commence.
