    She looks great now Paul, changing the cab was a good idea.

    That looks sharp!

    Not sure if this was discussed before, but those "pizza cutter" flanges on the drivers makes it look as if it was a kit-bash of a couple Rivarossi 0-6-0's.

    it was some kind of 2-6-6-2 as best as i can tell the wheel boxes don't look like they were cut down but the frame has been cut to make it shorter it may have started as a 2-8-8-2 but i don't know for sure.

    well I just talked by email to the guy who made her. he is Chuck Chenault he said it did start off as a 2-8-8-2 he shortened the trucks and the frame to make it the size it is from coupler to coupler is only 58 scale feet. I just wanted to give credit where it belongs.

    Credit to you both.
    Him for cutting it down, you for making it look like a working engine!
