I'm just about finished except for a headlight lens from MV products. I've started with a Bachmann 4-4-0 Old Timer engine and a Rivarossi tender and replaced most details with brass castings and rebuilt the cab , pilot and valve/side rod guides. The brass details include the bell, sand and steam domes, headlight, marker lights and coonskin smokebox plate. The Rivarossi tender was used because its larger size is more accurate for the prototype I'm modeling(Rivarossi 4-4-0 Old Timers are OO scale and too big to use in HO scale but tender size is just right for my purposes and the electric motor is way better and quieter than Bachmanns offering).You can see the copper pickup shoe I made in the photo at right. It's riding the rail just in front of the tender wheel. Please enjoy the photos.
