The ones that got away... No. 5 'Diamond Jubilee'

Digging through my half-completed projects from early 2011, I found this much hacked-about Dapol railbus front that had been the prototype for a conversion I had in mind.

The idea was to build something long the lines of the Ravenglass and Eskdale Railway's 'Silver Jubilee' railcar from a complete Dapol kit and the left-overs of the loco conversions I have completed.  As it was likely to be built/ready for 2012 I had rather tongue-in-cheekily nicknamed it 'Diamond Jubilee'...

I think it was James Bond who once said "Never say never...", but we shall see.

Edit: Yes, this was posted as 'Golden Jubilee' earlier today, I seem to have lost the last decade somewhere along the line....
