|Duane, tis a great idea you have there.
After the brouhaha I weathered when I posted the "decomposing nazi" photo on another website
("too gruesome, not good for a model train layout" and some other sweetness & light comments),
I may not add dead dudes to the front porch!
However, after looking at that fine old Uintah video, I decided to bust off the big headlight and glue it to the porch.
As the alien in "Men in Black" said- "Is that better?"
Also seen is the Mogollon Railway's female fireman, er..firewoman, firelady, chick with a shovel...And the cab roof is now red.
I happen to love red cab roofs.
Still to come-the funky air pump will be replaced with a nice PSC job, some lettering & numbers,
bell & whizzle ropes, some stuff on the running boards, and very little dirt, no rust.
As you said, we are proud of this new loco, it will look nice.
One note for you heavy grade owners, the loco as it comes stock, does NOT like heavy grades!
I fixed that problem but #7 is still out pulled by Garratt #4, matter of fact, #4 can pull this loco dead up a 10% grade!
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
