Toby in the Workshop 2

The cab openings and windows at the rear of Toby have been cleaned up. There will be plenty of clearance for new floors and backs in the cabs. I'm thinking about cutting out the side windows too.
A rear view of Toby. Doesn't he look much better now that there's a view through the windows and cab sides?
There is still a lot of tidying up to be done to the front cab. This view shows that the eye operating mechanism will need to be boxed in, but again there is enough clearance to fit a floor and cab back.
Thoughts are now turning to how the cabs will need to be fitted out. I've scanned a couple of pictures from book number 7 "Toby the Tram Engine" published in 1952.
It looks like the Bachmann Toby's windows are far too small and the funnel isn't right either.
