    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.

    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.

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

    Dave,

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

    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:

    Thanks for the explanations on the design of the camel backs. Makes more sense now.

    Dave the camelback is looking really good. Keep it away from that pretty C&O 7039 boxcar - you don't want it to be the straw that breaks the camelback

    Dave, I am enjoying your work on this ugly duckling. Your modeling is great. The detailing is sharp and the primer coat is cleanly applied. I look forward to seeing this finished.

    Even on a regular engine they were out on the deck plate which could be wet and cold .

    Makes me wonder how miserable the real locomotives were to be on. Figuring your butt and toes would get mighty warm in those cabs. It would not have been the way I would have wanted to earn my paycheck!
