Some more sit and think model work.

Was staring at the thing and realized it was time to add a temporary exhaust stack and some cab shades.

The exhaust should probably be thinner and have a muffler on it, but I like the single big stack.

yeah the little driver has to put up with a kurmudgeony 0-55-0 Gassssssy loco.

:bg::bg::bg::bg::bg: 

I think about simply using it with 35n2, but I am going to try to build a doorpanel layout for it and some other model ideas.

All I saw was the main page. 

I feel I need a horn and a bell. I was looking at bells and I think I can turn one myself. 

We'll see how that project goes. ;) 

oh... o.k. Found it! http://www.northeast.railfan.net/industrial.html

Here are several stacks and other details I have found interesting from looking through their Plymouth section:

Pretty cool. 

One engine had some interesting steps bolted on the outside of the loco. Those are a tempting addition.

I did think about doing this kind of arrangement.

The small stack and sand dome here are interesting. 

Now to find a sand dome!

Note that I may have added a couple links while you were making your reply.

Yep, the industrial "critter" locomotives are pretty cool, almost anything goes.

I am more into steam for narrow gauge. 

But the old gas critters with steam engine shaped sand domes really are a cross over stage. 

Never knew those existed. 

Now I gotta have one. :D

There are a number of places on here where that or similar has been said!

That's one of the great things about this forum.

And if you ever get in the mood for a bit of gasoline and lots of fresh air, there is:
