Hey, hey, hey, stimulus money model train buy arrived in mail today!

Call it my latest kitbashing victim.  :)





And, yes, I was planning alterations to it, even before ordering it!  ;)

Including sawing some parts off.  :)


First being shortening the tender's truck bearings,
and adding Kadee 590 electrical pickup trucks.

Also plan to repaint its boiler jacket and domes,
from black to bare metal like actual B&O 0-6-0 in the following.

Had even mixed the paint before the stimulus money arrived.  :)

True, the model and that one, are different classes of 0-6-0,
but that livery was applied to several locomotive types on B&O's roster.

I guess it could be risky un-packing the new B.& O. for a photo.

A cat might quickly take up residence in the box !

Indeed!  :)

They both have a reputation for doing so almost immediately ...


Here's the other one doing likewise

The first thing I thought from seeing the box was, "Seriously, their HO stuff smokes?"

Beats me why they never could (or would) make anything in On30 that smoked...
