    Your Hallmark Frisco cab looks great! I have three of the Overlands, which also look good, but I don't think they are as dimensionally correct as are the Hallmarks. I've never measured them - need to do that sometime.
    I do have the Hallmark side-door cab, but it is still unpainted.

    Judging by the location of that whistle, I was wondering that had to be loud for the person pulling that lever!

    To complete the tour of the North Birmingham section of the layout, which is territory serviced by the Seaboard Air Line Railway, here are a few shots of the SAL engine house and industrial switching area.

    Fascinating stuff, as usual. Unless one's modeling a very small slide of Friscoland, I always enjoy seeing interchange power - the SBD switcher and caboose go a long way towards establishing a sense of place. In this case, "we're definitely in the SE of Friscoland, not SW or elsewhere."

    Best Regards,
