Michael --

Thanks ... and, ditto what Anders and Russ said.  Dave ("DaKra") of Vector Cut makes a neat assortment of goodies.  Photo below shows a sheet of photo-etched parts (brass) alongside two different-size sets of Vector Cut nuts & bolt heads (tan sheets).  I think he also makes the washers in a separate paper-thin sheet now too, which would be good for stacking parts.

And, he's got various gears and bits and so forth ... have a look thru the HO and O scale parts for various items that will prove useful in various scales.  He has also done custom bits for Anders, myself and other members of the forum ...

Cheers,
Dallas

Any further time for this lately Dallas?  I'll probably be riding this PB loco again in a few weeks, so though I might check in...

Hi Dan --

I was working on this while "stalled" on the 1/35 cafe ... that's going again, so this project is back on hold until the next "occasion" ... have given more thought to it though ... also thought of a potentially interesting display.  When I lived in Boulder, Colorado, there was a park with an old C&N / DB&W 2-8-0 loco on display with a car or two and a short length of track ... with a plaque ... something like that might be interesting.  Meanwhile, glad to be rolling on the cafe again ... hope that continues for a while ... then back to this when able.

Cheers,
Dallas

This site has HUNDREDS of photos of a pretty little outside-frame 2-4-0, including loads of detail and close-up shots:

Fantastic site, thanks! Exactly what I needed for reference images for my "abandoned 2-8-0 project".

Holy cow, that is the most thoroughly photographed loco I've ever seen! I don't think they missed a single detail. And what a beautiful little loco. I sure hope someone restores it, or at least preserves it.

Excellent link Dallas... loads of useful reference photos. Too bad all of our favourite locos aren't documented this thoroughly. Thanks for posting.
