Hi all. Well, I will be serious for a change and ask a question. My daughter gave me this 225E Loco, with whistling tender, and though my eyes lit up like Christmas trees when I saw it, I have some problems with it. I hope she didn't pay too much for it, as it needs a new top. Mechanically, it is fine, and the hinges on the boiler front where the headlight is, work fine. What has happened is someone (probably a kid) cut half of the Cowcatcher off. Guess he thought the engine came too close to the tracks. Wonder if it is too late to get my hands around his throat? Ha ha. Any idea where I might get something like that? I know I will probably end up paying as much for the top as the entire engine. My daughter bought it in an antique shop, so I bet she paid way too much. As far as I can tell, it dates back to about 1939 when I was born. Could be way off. Back hook on the tender is the old style, flat with dual points and it turns sideways to latch. Any help would be appreciated. I tried to post a picture, but being a computer "non-nerd", I didn't have any luck. All have a nice day. Jack.
