This has been a build I've wanted to get done for some time.
The real versions could be found at the front end of passenger train rakes quite often back in their day.

It looks really nice. I love the cross bar technique on the door.

Thanks for the comments guys  :classic:
Sealander, I'm afraid I dont have the part number as its available in different lengths, I just searched for 3mm hose(soft) in brown on Bricklink for the extra pieces I needed. Although its described as brown, longer lengths come in reddish brown so its a bit of a mismatch

I've never seen a more accurate and perfect Fruit D (or GWR vehicle, for that matter). When's the 'Bloater' or 'Siphon' being released?  :tongue:

High praise indeed thank you Matt  :classic:
The "Siphon" is on my "to do" list, but who knows when? :sceptic:
