Some years ago I posted a picture of my work on a Bachmann 2-8-0 in scale 1:20.3.
It should be a high detailled replica of #14 of the FC Mexicano (Zacatlan branch). So I changed all the US-style accessoires and attached the missing details, especially on tender and inside the cab. Now I finished the work and prepare it for the paint finish.

(Note: The outside frame of the leading truck is removed because of small track radii.)

If you are dealing with narrow gauge of Mexico or Latin-America (Guatemala, Salvador, Equador, Chile etc.) please let me know. There are not much good informations about railways in these countries, but I would like to learn more about it.
