        Looks great Frank. Very colourful, but I assume it will get a good coat of grime and rust.

            Thanks Pete.

            Carl, thanks you know those long hazy lazy daze of summer.

            Rob, yes it will be given a moderate rust-over.

            Jerry, you’d be surprised how cold it gets here in winter. It got down to a bone chilling 34 degrees this past winter. And I think we had frost a couple of days.

                  Bill and Mike, yes 8 steps for mankind.

                  I applied tissue paper to the canvas portion of the roofs with Canopy Glue. Then I gave them another coat of gray paint.



                  They’re starting to come together now. I first painted the air tanks gray but it made the radiator units on the roof look sky high. By painting the tanks black it tied the radiators to the tanks and they look more unified.

                  The grab irons, air horns, headlights, exhaust stacks, air tanks and pipes, the bell, couplers and coupler lift bars have been installed. I striped the pilots with white paint. That was a little tedious but it came out pretty good.









                  I have to install the brake lines and MU lines to the pilot. I need to find a Diesel Punk engineer.
