Mountain Goat is an unknown quantity at this point

Getting handrails to sit straight was a challenge when constructing a resin kit. My first loco had handrails that were mounted on the saddle tank. The issue I had with one of the little handrail pins was that I couldn't drill its hole straight. Resin is very easy to drill, but the saddle tank had lead shot added to add some extra weight. The one piece of lead inside the resin pushed the drill bit sideways as I made the hole.
II have plenty more handrails to fit soon due to the kit I'm constructing. 7mm scale had rails are small enough so I do sympathise with fitting 4 mm scale handrails. Having said that, it is an interesting challenge and the improvement it will give makes it worth it.
