    Thank you for your kind words. It's been a pleasure to share these models. I figured someone would fit a decoder under the chassis but I had no idea one would fit in the cab area. Wow, that's fine work! While I'm here, I'd like to apologize to anyone that was not able to get a set of 44 Tonner handrails before they sold out. My supplier sent me the next batch but shipping is extra slow these days. Happy Holidays, everyone.

    Hi Rudy,

    Please let us know when the 44 Tonner handrails arrive back in stock. I placed an order for the Shapeways parts, and then realized you meant the handrails were STILL out of stock.
    Just as well, as I'm still trying to decide on paint scheme so I can order your decals, as well.
    Any reason the Pennsy number couldn't be 9331? I'd like to recreate the Strasburg version, repainted from #33.

    Thanks for all your fine offerings!

    Rudy,

    My 44-Tonner has shipped, so please save me a set of handrails etc. until I can get home tonight and place the order! Unfortunately, I can't complete the transaction from the office.

    Thank you for the notice!

    TramFabriek, where the motors are sold, also has the DH mini decoders available later this month, and they look small enough for this project!

    Wow! Those must the smallest decoders ever manufactured.

    I think they are the smallest. 5mm x 8mm x 2.4mm is pretty small and thin!
