      Thanks Ted, there’s something about odd and unusual looking locos that perk my interest.

      Thank you Louis.

      Thanks George and Bruce

      Karl, page 35 huh, I’ll bet that took a while. That is an interesting paint job. They must have done a poor prep job for the rust between the FLS stripes to show through. Really interesting paint job to copy, thanks.

      After this post I went searching for more pictures and I found a ton at this site:

      More fuel for doing a copy paint job.

        I'd love to see you do that same loco.

        My photo also was taken in MI, at Mulliken W of Lansing, on the old Pere Marquette

            Frank,

            I'm slow getting here to this wonderful kitbash.

            I too, have always had an eye perking up to any BQ cab engine build or kitbash.

            You did an awesome job here. Very nice job executing & photographing.

            Always looking forward to see what you are doing and hopefully my cement head leaks in a little new knowledge every now & then. Thanx Thom...

              Thankx for the compliments Thom. It is a curious piece of railroad history. I think you should go for it. The Bachmann BQs come up for auction every once in a while. I bought a second one as a spare.
