Hi guys!
Update on the Dora continues, the brass arrived and started to make the needed hand rails.
I used K&S brass rod 1.5mm

Using the original handrails as a guide, the different pieces are held together with tape to be soldered

The finished parts for one of the cars ready to install

Now it looks like this with the new handrails, these are now 27mm tall from the floor to the top of the rail tube. After observing the original photos and comparing it to the rails on the trumpeters Leopold it now looks right.

Now with the rails height corrected, the large storage box of on one of the front cars needs to be corrected to match the new height.

I Used 2.5 x 3mm square styrene rod to make the box match the new height of the handrail.
