Rolling Stock / Re: B&O RR 2-8-0 painting - B&O Guy will like this one.

In the catalog photo above, the decals appear white but the B&O used Delux Gold lettering. The photo may be correct but the photography may have it appear white.



About year out from Champ Decal Company closing, I order three sets of all the decals I thought I may need or use. I was winding down my customer base brass painting and didn't want to be caught short. I did the same with Floquil and Scalecoat paints.

I did get decals for all the brass locos I had at the time. Since then, I've sold off a considerable amount of the brass but still have the decals. I gave a set of decals for the locos I sold.



More tomorrow.

I removed all the parts as shown below. I'll refer to this photo tomorrow for some added information on taking brass locos apart.



The loco has been stripped and cleaned in an Acetone bath and is now ready for painting. I'll get to the painting tomorrow.

Rolling Stock / B&O RR 2-8-0 painting - B&O Guy will like this one.

Off on my second brass painting adventure. This one is an B&O RR. E-27 class consolidation. This model was made by Atlas and imported by PFM in 1975. PFM imported a total of 2601 of these between 1967 and 1975. The 1967 model sold new for $55.00 and the 1975 model sold for $180.00. This model, the 1975 version has plastic brake shoes.

Our resident B&O Guy, Chip Stevens, will probably watch this one. 

I have already taken it apart and forgot to take a loco photo. Here is the 1969 version from the 13th Edition of the PFM catalog.



Two years ago I installed DCC WOW sound and have removed the decoder. Many years ago I also installed a new 20 X 32mm Sagami can motor. I've never had a problem with the PFM gear boxes so I left this one as is.



More in a few.
