    I finally finished the installation of the sound in my kitbashed 2-8-0 camelback. Still have to tune the sound and the decoder, want to add engineer and fireman figures and few other tweaks, but its in service!!

    Here is a short video of it operating:

          Dave,

          Your camelback displays excellent craftsmanship. It runs very well. I like the sound.

            Dave,
            Thanks for the video. The camel back looks great! Nice kit bash/scratch build. Love the rolling stock and scenery as well.

              It does look good, it is nice to see a camelback from this era rather than the late variations. Did you start with an old vintage MDC kit? Did you retain the original wheels as well? If you did I don't even notice that the treads are brass. Truly, you can get away with a lot from all these detail we consume such energy on.

                It's a latest run mechanism (green box), with an older boiler. It has the nickel silver drivers with the pickup wipers on all drivers and all wheel pick on all tender wheels. They are great running engines right out of the box.
