Update... 

This contraption runs without any of the usual disasters, 
no binding gears, no smoking decoder. 

Painted it in one of my preferred colors, silver,
but took great care the interior was sealed during painting,
so it remains in the plastic color which I find ok for an interior.

Decoder is hidden underfloor behind front steps and toolboxes.

In this view the unwanted threaded hole in the spoked wheel shows up....
I will live with it. 
Those shop men scrounged everything they could get hold of back then ! 

Seems they also utilized the pilot of the same scrapped steamer,
as the original Mack pilot was destroyed in the first week,
when there was a dispute regarding right of way with farmer Jonahs cow !
