    Sweet tankers you got there sir! It looks like you have a nice set of cars there. I especially like it when the letterboards are all full of reporting data. You made some very detailed decals, excellent work!

    Hi Pawel, your 101A looks good. Printing quality seems to improve over time.

    Another Marklin BD will serve as PKP. Right one was made some months ago but the left one needed decals.

    Time to work on locomotives. Thics time it is BR86 to be converted info PKP Tkt3.
    During the work I did several things:

    - removed top front and end lights (they were not used in Poland)
    - removed number plate from the front of the locomotive
    - added "wooden top" of coal box - they were extended at PKP in this way
    - new painting including white edges of the wheels
    - new decals
    - weathering

    Work in progress:

    Final result:

    @bostonjim - Thank you for the comment.

    I do have some more steamers waiting to be converted into PKP. Next on the benchwork is BR78 - work will be more extensive and I plan to show how it is done:

    I am really insired by this photo of PKP Oko1-11 locomotive:

    oko1.jpg

    I started the job with back of the loco - all three lights must be reworked:

    IMG_3805.jpg

    Upper one should be removed and the lower ones must be replaced to be in the middle of the box instead of lower edge. It is always a little bit frightening to "destroy" those tiny models:

    Looks good Pawel! Good choise, this is one of Märklin's best running steam locomotives, even with 3-pole motor.
