    Hi All,

    Well I finally started building my CNE power.

    First up is #2, a Baldwin 2-6-0 built in 1889.

    I started with a Marklin loco and cut, filed and chopped to get the correct proportions.

    I then made some parts from aluminum, such as the cab roof and raised area of the boiler.

    I have alot of cast details that were made by London Bridge for Rogue Locomotive works for the masters my dad was creating. I have added those in the last picture.

    The gas headlight in the last picture was created in Illustrator, exported to Solidworks, and then grown in a Formlabs machine at work.

    I still have to create railings, piping, and the tender.

    Thanks Guys,
    I forgot to mention that the headlight is printed in clear, and so it will act as a light pipe. The domes are mounted on washers that are counter bored into the boiler, to create shoulders.
