Bling for the Millie

I have been buying some accessories to make my Millie look even lovelier.

I also bought a nifty little brake-style-handle for the gas regulator – but unfortunately I broke it the first time I used it.

The Millie out with her bling:

The order included the chuff-pipe I need so that the Millie will have that┬ásplendid chuffing sound… but fitting this requires some surgery, which I haven’t plucked up courage to tackle yet…
