Thanks Eddie !

I changed doors, radiator inlets, clean air section inlets,
and lots of things on the other side.

All were done to correct the engine to match the number.

" What I like most about the Site is that it shows you how things were THEN.
I personally find most (if not all) layouts set in that era, grossly OVER weathered !

If you are modeling, say, 1920s, everything built that year was NEW,
and everything else was maintained.

But you see any layout set in 1920, and trains are rolling wrecks,
structures are falling apart, and cars are junkyard rejects.

While the craftsmanship is superb,
I find it hardly realistic "

:old dude:

No mention of NAILHOLES !

(I'm gonna hide under my desk now !)

:P

Eddie

Be aware that many of the vintage photos

show the not-so-well-to-do in their surroundings.
