ACL 1504,
             What an absolutely fantastic job sir!  If you ever decide to start building/painting locos again I have a couple brass engines as you know I'd love done the right way for a change. ??? Looking forward to your next magic steam act when you get around to it sir.  KP-out...  excuse me while I watch the game???   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLGpymRl8bQ

The paint job turned out just fantastic Tom.


Steve,

Thanks very much. I'm happy to have this one finished. Getting it back together was very difficult.

Tom ;D

Thom,

Ah, shucks. I knew you would want some help.  :P  However, not sure I have the time to do any others than mine. Besides, we can't afford each others prices.

Greg,

You are more than welcome to try your hand at the throttle. But believe me when I say this one is very slow. Probably slower than the Judge's Sierra.

Nice job Tom....you're a braver man then me. The last compound engine I did was a Westside PRR Q-2 and it had a rigid frame. Getting one set of rods working smoothly is a job in itself and then you throw in a second set......great job.

Doug,

Thank you, much appreciated. I did the Judge's Sierra 2-6-6-2 articulated loco a couple years ago. That wasn't to bad but this one was much harder getting back together than the Sierra. Also, this is my final articulated loco rigid frame or not.

I forgot to add with the Pennsy engine - just when I got everything back together and running smoothly the local SPF made his appearance and proudly announced to anyone within earshot that I had the valve gear set backwards - the Pennsy(Standard Railroad of the World) ran left leading valve gearing when everyone else ran the valve action with the right side leading....sheeessss.

Doug,

I got a chuckle out of this comment. The people in the hobby I like least are the rivet counters.  :-X :-X
