Custom work/painters for/on HO brass locomotives
Today I received my first brass locomotive. It is a United/PFM Baldwin 2-6-2 Oregon Lumber Company #105. I'm very excited about it.
(I know it's not a Frisco, but I'm working on getting a Russian.)
First, I want to have it upgraded with a can motor, gear box, and flywheel.
Secondly, I would like to have DCC installed into it, with sound.
Third, I need to have it professionally painted.
On the first, I know to go to NWSL for the parts.
On the second, I am going to contact Tony at Tony's Trains and see how much it would be to have DCC and sound installed. I also want an operating headlight and backup light.
On the third, I'm clueless.
Does anyone know:
A) Anyone who does all the above?
B) Anyone other than Tony's to recommend for DCC installation?
C) Custom Painters. Who do you recommend?
The brass is very clean. I cannot see or find any tarnish.
Thanks. I tried to search but nothing came up.
