Gordon,
Here is that picture of "Pioneer" that I was telling you about.
 
I'm sure there is more information out there about this guy, I haven't researched it.  I just ran across this old photo in a junk store and thought of Gordon's loco projects.

Thanks all.
Rick Marty


Great image and info...thanks. I am sure Gordon could nudge Jim Wilke to see what info he has knows about her....probably more than you ever wanted to know Grin Grin Grin

Thanks guys for your comments and Rick for the great photo. I've been working on a 1:1 brick fence the past five weeks and have had less time for modeling.

Here is a photo of the fence 7 of the 21 panels we laid the last brick on Saturday



Here is a photo of the Tea Pot in a jig to hold it while I work on the bottom

That's a neat jig, Gordon.  Nicely done!
BTW, what did you use for wheels?  If you mentioned it somewhere in the thread, I can't find it.

Nice brick fence, too.  Must've taken a long time to scribe mortar lines in those big styrene sheets,
and those laser-cut pallets are a nice touch.

Gordon, why on earth would you interrupt your modeling to do actual work and get paid? -- Russ

(Must've had a Senior Moment)
I didn't scroll up to the very first photo in my search yesterday,
but now I do remember seeing that.....

I'll probably ask again tomorrow.

Geez, Gordon.  That's a beautiful model. 
The details are super...and you paint as good as you build.

Bravo!!!

Beautiful, as always!

Is the tender a part of the loco, like a Forney, or is it separate? Would the wheel arrangement be 4-2-0 (plus tender), or 4-2-4?

Another most satisfactory model, Gordon. I am glad you could find the time to complete it. The underbody detail is wonderful. -- Russ

Hi Gordon,
Superbly finished model as usual, I particularly like the finish on top of the water tank, nicely mottled effect.  Great build, but geez, she aint no glamourous looking piece of machinery is she...sort of like the tomboy workhorse in the fleet I think Grin

It would have undoubtably been picked on at school for having big wheels or something... Grin Grin

Cheers,
Dan

Indeed, your usual beautiful work, plus an extremely unique subject.

I don't know if you have been asked before, but what becomes of these? Are they displayed or stored or? It would be quite a sight to see your locos all together.
