I picked up one of
these from Hartland. If you join their online club they are
selling for $50.00
I decided to just paint
over the tanks to cover up the UP as I heard it was next to
impossible to get the lettering off the Hartland stuff.
I also ended up breaking off the
cab as even though I had the thing torn apart considerably I
could not get it off any other way.
The plan all along was to build a
new taller cab and hopefully bring the little loco more into
scale with my other locomotives. I built this cab from
sratch (a reall butt puller). My first attempt at any
scratch building with no plans.
I'm not through with the cab yet,
but here it is just sitting on the loco to give an idea of
what it will look like.
Almost finished. I only have the
railing on the right side to drill a hole for in the cab and
Got the right railing put on. Here
are the final pictures. Enjoy!
