Consider that an improvement-- as will the engineer.

After all-- you are probably going to cut off his arms and legs and glue them back on in different positions.

Perhaps twist his neck, and do other unspeakable acts to the poor guy-- no point to subjecting him to a concussion on top of all that.

Lookin' good Wood !

Thanks for the battery sizes.
It makes more sense now she's on the Mogollon with some peep's walkin' about.
Nice pix.

That work with the 'Herb 'O' Rivet'TM has realy paid dividends on cab MKII.

Tender mods. spot-on.

Cheers

Si.

P.S.
Hadn't noticed before; your Garret is called 'Pat'...
...Billy The Kid's pal ?
( love that movie )

Si- Pat was my late wife's name, she enabled me to indulge in my obsession.
The Garratt still is the heavy hauler, much more powerful than the 2-4-4-2.
The new loco is evolving a bit more...photos later.

I prefer the open cab to the first one- gives the locos a family look.

The "front porch" Herb mentioned doesn't bother me, reminds me of the front end of the Uintah mallets:

If you find this type of footage tiresome, you can forward to 1:05

Great vid, Duane.
 
That thing is working hard pulling a short train of empty flats--must be a heck of a grade--
of course, the model railroad curves don't help.

Herb- the front porch..I know, I know.. but aside from making the loco an 0-4-4-2, the porch stays.
The lead truck needs some room to swivel and with a couple of sharp curves on the line, it needs the room.
Or maybe a really tiny wheel and then shortened...naaaw.
Tools and a box will have to do.

And those Uintah curves and grades, they make my curves and grades look like class one mainline.
I believe the Morro Castle grade was about 6% to 8% and the curve was 65 feet radius or so.
