    Sams,

    Thanks for the compliment!

    I add an orange LED to the fireboxes of most of my locos when I add sound. So, it applies to a lot of them! ;) The ten-wheeler and the 2-6-0 both have it.

    My brother found a Con- Cor by Kato Baltic at ebay or a train show somewhere. They are a great runner!

    Just 2 small Santa Fe engines.... the last active Mogul 2-6-0 2531 (scrapped 1951) and one of the last consolidation 2-8-0 664 (donated to Travel Town LA in 1953). The 2531 is a modified Model Power engine: new 8500 gallon tender, Tsunami sound and speaker in tender, modified cab and repainted. The 664 is a modified MDC/Athearn engine. New cab and smokestack (3D printed), relocated sanddome, modified running boards (brass etchings) plus some other smaller details. Also a new 8500 gallon tender with coreless motor, Zimo sound decoder and sugar cube speaker plus lead weight inside..... tender has all-wheel power pickup. Both engines are good runners and can handle quite some cars..... (664 about 25). 664 rechts web.jpg 2531 rechts web.jpg 2531 links web.jpg 664 links web.jpg

    Hi Dirk. Your engines look great!! I model a freelance Coloradoore/mining railroad (based on Nevada Northern & Colorado Midland) and have a pair of the MP 2-6-0s and 3 Athearn/MDC 2-8-0s. I'm doing an almost identical conversion on the 2-8-0s but using the Bachmann long USRA tenders and cabs (from their 2-8-0). I'm using 8x16mm coreless motors in the tenders.
    Great work mate!!

    Thanks.... and good to hear you are doing same thing.... those 8 x 16 mm motors are great (I use those as well).

    The Athearn locos look great! Did you get the 3D printed cab and smokestack from Shapeways?

    Thanks, the cab, smokestack and also a plug to cover the whole of the sanddome (relocated a little backwards) are avalaible from my Shapeways shop.
    Look for ATSF N Scale Models on Shapeways and/or www.atsfnscalemodels.com.
    If you have more questions please let me know. 664 ETCHING.jpg

    This is my MP 2-6-0 with Loksound fitted into it. A few years ago, as they are all just sitting waiting on their move, yet.
