I have put the charge socket in the back of the logstack.

The switching from charging to running,
is via a two pin plug disguised as the tank filler.

Sorry about poor quality of pictures.

One other irritant,
my Shay rear truck universal joint disintegrated!
Made of some rubbish soft plastic.

Have made up one out of brass,
with a plastic sleeve to keep knuckle's centred. 
Have a replacement truck on order.

Below is a shot of my replacement,
a bit over scale but it works.
