That looks very cool luv it. The loco has come out looking very nice. A friend of mine purchased an N Scale turntable some years ago and the instructions stated to use super glue to harden the paper used to form the girders over the center of the bridge. It turned out real nice. It's a very easy way to get some shapes that are difficult to do any other way just like your light bracket.

Hi Rod, and thanks.

I have to admit it worked better than I thought it would, and it still feels like I got away with something. lol:mex:

Dave,

Neat idea using paper and CA glue. Who'd a thought?

BTW, looks darn nice and fragile.

Thanks Bernd.

It's fairly sturdy... not like soldered brass by any means, but we need to handle all of our models with care, and if reasonable care is used, It seams it will hold up just fine. :thumb:

Dave,

Great stuff!!!  The engine would be the pride and joy of any railroad who owned it.  You have inspired me.....I just got one of those engines and now gathering my detail parts.

Really a great bash Dave. 

Ryan

Dave-

I agree with Ryan (and with all the previous posters) that you have hit the "sweet spot" of loco design--but you have proved to us in the past that you have a talent for doing that.

So-- don't stop!

Herbie

Dave, she reminds me of a description of a Swayne Lumber Co. 0-6-0st which had "six driving wheels of the same diameter.". Like everyone else posted, she's a winner!

Yep... It's pretty darn cool. Seeing it has made me head to the workbench to work on my own conversion for the first time in months.

Great job, Dave.
