Thanks! 

It is still running about twice as fast as originally designed, but in practical terms all that that means is that I have built a 10-minute timer instead of a 20-minute one.  Turning the dial around to the '5' position and setting it going will reliably time for 2 and a half minutes.

Persons intending to travel by open carriage should select a seat with their backs to the engine, by which means they will avoid the ashes emitted therefrom, that in travelling generally, but particularly through the tunnels, prove a great annoyance; the carriage farthest from the engine will in consequence be found the most desirable.

Thanks, James.
Looks good, either way.  Cheesy

Thanks.  It does of course need something to stand on and something to keep the dust off; but at the same time I want something that will still allow easy access to it (not something that I have to take off or take apart just to be able to use the timer). 

I have an idea or two; a dome of some description perhaps to echo the silhouette of the timer; that will be part 2 of the build.
