    I just completed the Newkirk colliery's saddle tanker to work the coal fields in Tamaqua. Now all I need to do is build the mine. So here she is at work on all the track I have right now.

    She started out life as a pretty much new in the box Spectrum Santa Fe loco that I got at a train show for about $15:thumb:. it sat in the basement for a few years not knowing what to do with it until the other day when I was inspired by a mine engine in The Big Little Railroad. I added a spark arrestor, some extra piping, cab interior(throttle/brake stand/Johnston bar), and polling beams for extra detail .

    The junk scattered about the foot and running boards is very nice! Looks good! (Nice photos as well).
