    This is a Hallmark Frisco 2-8-0 which has been redetailed with 2 New York air pumps and converted to coal burning. New doghouse, can motor, Tsunami and a few custom castings.
    It's in the process of being dirtied up with chalks right now and will enter service as a helper engine out of Newburg.

    I can almost feel the ground rumble. Very nice weathering and I bet that Tsunami really breathes life into it. Excellent work as usual.

    Don--We've GOT to have a group (family) photo of your engines around the roundhouse! :)))

    Super! I can almost hear it climbing Rolla/Dixon hills on helper assignments already!

    I'm starting to give some thought to a photo roster. There are too many to gather round the roundhouse now. I wish I had a backdrop like the Springfield shop wall to pose them against.

    Makes me regret leaving HO just a bit.
