Running in board

 Something short was required. Preferably not more than four letters to make it easier to shuffle bits of plastic around. Something that said Wales without explaining. Using the prefix Y is always a winner. It translates (according to my book on such things) as the peak. Saying it will cause confusion though. A VAN as in what is a Transit? And a long A sound. The lettering was from a set of Scandinavian shop signs, and the rest is bits of plastic sheet and strip. Valleys running in boards are not known for their ornamentation - something simple and concise is what's required.

  1. The running in board is nice and typically untypical.....given that the GWR had "standards" for just about everything, it never ceases to amaze me how many decidedly non-standard features (fencing, running in boards, whatever....) crop up in prototype photos.
    This is coming together very nicely!
