    Very impressive Paul, The large scale must be a delight to work in but at the same time, more and more details become necessary and you are the master of fine detailing. Nicely done.

    Really nice work Paul. It's the details that make it, and I have to say I love the sawblade hanging on the side of the car.
    Logging railroads sure had some interesting rolling stock, that's for sure.

    cheers

    Paul,
    You will have to pull all the piping out of the front wall of the cab, and break the engineer's, and fireman's seats out. They are plastic, and glued in place, they come out easily enough with a little pressure from a small flatblade screwdriver.
    Then, on the engine side, just in front of the step, there's a small plastic "wedge", held in place with a tiny flathead phillips screw. Remove the screw, and carefully remove the wedge, and the cab slides to the fireman's side and the three lugs will clear the frame and the cab comes up off the frame.
