That's good progress you are making Paul. It looks so much better already.
well got her painted and now took her out for a test run.
Very nice Paul, I like the sepia shots. Very realistic.
Well I got the C-16 cab today and it is on. I think it looks alot better now.
hey - that looks niiiiiice. What's next?
paint decals and some track.
Looks Good so far Paul :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
well got some decals on her and i think she looks pretty good what do you guys think of her now.
She looks great now Paul, changing the cab was a good idea.
That looks sharp!
Not sure if this was discussed before, but those "pizza cutter" flanges on the drivers makes it look as if it was a kit-bash of a couple Rivarossi 0-6-0's.
it was some kind of 2-6-6-2 as best as i can tell the wheel boxes don't look like they were cut down but the frame has been cut to make it shorter it may have started as a 2-8-8-2 but i don't know for sure.
well I just talked by email to the guy who made her. he is Chuck Chenault he said it did start off as a 2-8-8-2 he shortened the trucks and the frame to make it the size it is from coupler to coupler is only 58 scale feet. I just wanted to give credit where it belongs.
Credit to you both.
Him for cutting it down, you for making it look like a working engine!
