    hello all---although not as glamourous as many steam engines on the cn system,switchers played a vital role in servicing local industries and shunting cars in the marshalling yards and passenger stations---here's a sampling of various switchers used on the cnr

    hi everyone---thanks for the kind words ---7456 is a pfm brass engine(one of the few on my roster that doctor wayne hasn't painted for me)

    the 8382 has wayne's fingers all over her---it started as a p2k standard cnr 0-8-0---i know how much work wayne put into this beauty---the tender was also modified .hopefully doctor wayne will respond with more technical info.

    thanks again,cn nutbar
