GWR 48xx/14xx: In the Cab

The cab for the 48xx/14xx is nearing completion with all the rivets and nuts in glorious 3D.
The keen eyed amongst you may notice the mechanism on the roof which was used to allow a cable running from the rear of an attached autocoach to operate the whistle of the locomotive when coupled back to back. If the locomotive was not fitted in this way, or the front of the locomotive was coupled instead, then the autocoach was fitted with a pedal operated gong for warning of its approach.
All of this will be replicated in the Train Simulator addon (and any future addons from Victory Works that are compatible) with the locomotives and autocoaches talking intelligently to each other.

The next task will be to get the loco and cab unwrapped and apply some textures.
