    It's a good thing I'm lenient about details.I went to show on the weekend{17th}and was lucky enough to find two RDC's in my price range{nearly free}looked on my favorite site for CN photo's only to find out that the windows are wrong on both,I didn't notice this detail 'till I'd painted them both{they were N.H}
    Next warm day{no heat in garage}I'll try and get some pics

    Windows? I don't see any windows! :) Yeah, don't sweat the small stuff unless you're planning on entering them in a contest or something! Enjoy the RDCs!

    Relic, which windows are wrong? And are you sure that CN didn't have something else that would match?

    Ozzy:Yesser that one is a '68 front frame,'72 forks '70 engone,well the cases are '70 the rest is stuff i had laying arround,I also have a '65 T120 and m'lady has a "'69" T120.Pm me off site I love talkin' bikes
    60103:The "real" coach has eleven windows ,the Athearn has ten.The real combine has six and the athearn has five.
    It's really not a big deal nobody that sees them is gonna know the difference, As long as stuff doesn't look too "toylike" and is in scale I can live with it{with my budget I have no choice,}

    OK, I know about Athearn. What you get with Athearn is a nice tremble and shake from the drive, just like the real thing. My first HO train set was a pair of RCDs.
