New tourist coach on the EMR

The GSM etched brass coach is being fitted as a "tourist" coach, so high density seating for the holiday-makers and day-trippers heading for the hills. It has LGB bogies and this is the first time it has run in service. Couplings are on the headstocks and it's the longest coach on the railway, so it wasn't 100% certain that all would be well. It ran perfectly, not a single derailment all afternoon. It's quite tall compared with the Brandbright coaches.

Now needs finishing - partitions, lamps, door handles. Not sure if the partitions will be full height or not.
