Absolutely stunning! 

Is it secured to the base in any way?

Gordon, Terrific looking model! Even after having seen the in progress photos, still hard to believe it's styrene.
Very good idea with the all white base, yet the wheels are on "rails" not the ground.

They are all well deserved!
Another stunning model.
Congratulations Gordon!

Just to say thanks Gordon, your model gave me the inspiration to go "big" with my Alco, though of course not up to your incredible standard.

Thank guys for your comments. Ray, it's secured to the base only with the wheel-flanges tight on the rails.

Here's a photo of the backhead.

Thank guys for your comments. I build bases with rails and carrying cradles for my two Shays and my two class A Climax locos.

Gordon, I published your articles for what, ten years? We've spoken on the phone, e-mailed dozens of times ... and this is the first photo I've ever seen of your workshop and how you store your models. Thanks for posting it. -- Russ
