It still needs transfers, there are some areas that still need another coat or two of paint, and the jury is out whether or not it should be lined out in straw, but aside from those issues I think this one is fairly close to completion.

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.

I´d opt for the lining.

I think you're right, it will pick out the moulding nicely.

When you say "transfers" do you mean [what US calls] "Decals"?.
If so (meaning, if we are talking about the same thing) do you seal them either before applying them (so they don't "run" in the water) or after application to protect them?

Yes, decals.  Specifically I'm got my eye on a set that will give me the coat of arms of the railway company, and 'Guard' and 'Luggage' lettering.  I usually use the pressfix type, which are sticky-backed, but I prefer to soak them in water first to get rid of that (otherwise if they don't go right first time you've got the awful job of trying to get them off again for another go).  Generally what I do is soak them, lay them down, pat them dry (which also puts on a bit of pressure to get them to adhere) and then coat the whole lot with dilute PVA glue (which dries satin and is a lot cheaper than varnish....)

Decals, yes.
You can have custom made ones (like your home village as home station for a goods wagon) at a good price.
Quality is very good. After applying and waiting a night for them to dry I apply a thin layer of clear paint to keep them waterproof.
