Louisiana & Arkansas Railway Ten Wheeler Painting
« on: May 22, 2020, 04:03:52 PM »
My A&S paint shop has a small ten wheeler up next for painting. This is a United/PFM brass loco 4-6-0  known as a ten wheeler. 750 of this model was made by Sam Hongsa in 1976 and sold new for $160.00. While visiting Cliff Powers the Babe bought this from Cliff for $100.00.



The L&A referred to this little loco as the "Hustler". It ran as an overnight train from New Orleans and Shreveport, LA.

The A&S RR will renumber and letter this one for the Atlantic Coast Line.

This photo was taken from the 1977 PFM 14th Edition Cartalog. I already have it in pieces, cleaned and ready to paint.



If you hate plan A, you are certainly not going to like plan B!

This one is now finished. I need to do a little paint touch up where I chipped it when reinstalling the WOW sound.

The side rods were all painted with Scalecoat Flat finish. The loco was also finished in flat as well. When I get all the locos painted and sounded, I'll do a day of loco weathering. Until then, they will be tested on the layout and any adjustments needed will be made prior to the final touches and weathering.

I've decaled this one for the Atlantic Coast Line. I was going to swap the oil tender for a short USRA coal tender but left it as is.

OK Greg.  Slow down big fella.  I'm pretty sure the A&S superintendent is not going to allow you to run that high steppin' ten wheeler wide open.   ;D
