Here,s two photos of #8. I added running boards to both sides and sand boxes for the front wheels. I used Woodland Scenics dry transfers decals (R.R. Gothic White DT 507) for the lettering.

Guys, thanks for posting the great photos they are both new to me. Here's photos of my progress on model #7  Monorail Loco American Magnesium Company Locomotive. # 1. There are a few more parts to be added after I take the two wheel assembles apart and paint them. The loco ended up about 8 scale inches too short I will have to build a chain-drive hand-crank in front of the radiator.

Although I suspect the model should be satisfactory I shall withhold judgment until after you apply the finish. -- Russ

That was fast, Gordon! That came out great. Hope you can get a section of track built!

I am almost inspired to start mine.
