New Glazing for the Signal Box

The glazing for my PIKO signal box had become opaque - mostly due to UV exposure, the thin plastic was breaking up as well. So only one way to get at it to replace it - take the signal box apart, hammer and screwdriver used - not too heftily though....
 All the bits were then put into a bath of soapy water ...
 out of the wash and dried out, ready for re-assembly...
 I removed the old glazing and then put in some new clear plastic (culled from Barbie doll packaging);  the main wall sections stuck back on and the roof supports ...
 The roof was then put back on and the access steps. Back out in the garden in its spot waiting for a train ....
