WOW Thats amazing!!! Nice work, I can't wait to see it when it is finished.
I have a couple questions: What gauge track dose this run on(45MM?)? Do you plan on adding sound to it? Also what power source do you plan to use, RC or or standard DC?
Congrats on an awesome locomotive!

Thank you for the comment.

This loco run on 45 mm track (but in reality the gauge was custom made from 18 " to broad gauge). It will run with dcc for my loco and the loco of my friend will be battery powered.

For the sound, The loco is equiped with a decoder without sound. The trick is that I have another sound decoder (esu one) under the table link in paralell conected to a subwoofer plus 2 satellites in order to have an excellent sound and loud also because I do exhibition.

Thank you for the information.
I like the semi-open cab on this plymouth. I once was looking at a plymouth that a guy had for sale. This engine had a fully closed cab. It was like an oven. To make matters worst it had an old metal tractor seat in it. Ouch!!!
My father didn't purchase the engine(I was only 14 at the time). If he had though, I would have made the cab more like the one on your model. I also would have bought a small cushion for the seat :)

The project keeps going.

The left one (battery powered) is built and the right one (dcc fitted) is on the way.
