Worked on my 'sparky' steam engine today a bit here in OKC while taking a day off from driving.

Constructed the firebox, boxed in the cylinder support structure and added cylinder steam chests.

The space beneath the firebox is large enough to house the Losi ESC. I hadn't considered this location prior to doing the firebox but then the lightbulb turned on between my ears. :!:

Looking pretty sweet there, DW.

Darn nice job you're doing on that build.

Progress continues on my little lokie as I sat here in W. Memphis waiting to deliver my current load of dogfood later this afternoon...



Began the costruction of the cab. Front and sides are 2mm thick styrene. Corners are 1/4 inch L shaped strips. The cab will be removeable. As the loco will 'operate' in the temperate climate of Oklahoma the cab is to remain mostly open.

Next step is a roof.

The cab is nearing completion of major components be put together.



Smaller details still need to be added but for now this will do.

Next up... side tanks. :)

Began constructing the tanks this evening.



They're simply resting on the lokie loosely in the photo. Bracketry needs to be fabbed still.

DW, I love the new concept.  Now that's true  garden railroading!
