    Looks good Kurt. Where on the Santa Fe are you modeling? This is probably too late, but Santa Fe used both coal and oil fired steamers. It all depended on what part of the system the engines ran on. I think the engines operating from Chicago through Kansas ran on coal. Those used in Oklahoma, Texsas, and across the Southwest to California used oil. I'm not sure about New Mexico.

    Steve, Steven, Cred, thank you for your nice comments. :wave: Russ, it’s never too late to get some good and useful information. Thank you. I want to model some place in the south west on my next layout, probably CA. But if I change my mind one day and want to model Chicago or Kansas, I can easily convert the tender from oil to coal again.
