I didn't think the seat in these things was a plastic box, so I made something. Since I don't know what they really looked like, this is my best guess.

This photo of a Cumbres & Toltec cab interior stolen from Flickr may be some use. I think it may be one of the bigger and even more boring than usual varieties of D&RGW loco, but at least it's a weathering reference and it does show a seat.

That is the picture I wanted. Thanks!

Surprise, surprise, for a wild guess I wasn't that far off.

Just remember Hector, to err is human, to really screw things up, you need a computer.

Time for some more photos. This first is an adapter to mount an Accucraft coupler in the Bachmann draft gear. The second is the new beam and rear steps on the tender.

Let's get back to work on this thing. Remember the lock we saw somewhere else on this forum? I just had to make one.

All good narrow gauge engines need a shovel to dig their way out of trouble. This is sheet brass with a small piece of tubing soldered on. The handle is a wood toothpick
