    Larry,
    Great looking engine! This maybe too late for your contest, but I think Details West makes the appropreate fuel filler(s) for the fuel tank. Not posative but they may have a kit with several details, IIRC. Good luck in the contest!

    CDB Industries like many other short line railroads keeps their locomotives well maintain so you'll not see much crud on the locomotives..:thumb:


    CDBI is the parent company of the C&HV and 6 other short lines plus 3 switching services.
