    Impressive work Scott!

    Though where did you get that engine? Can't say I've ever seen it before.

    Hi...

    Thanks - it's been a work in progress for a long time - determined to get it out soon now - been hitting it pretty hard lately... Largest Consolidation ever made - pulls on par with a Santa Fe...

    Scott, That old big L&HR Consolidation is beautiful ! I have a print that Erie photographer Robert Collins gave me of Consolidation #90 (With the all black boiler) storming across the NYSW interchange at Sparta Jct. in 1948 when I was a kid. You have to love those huge Wooten fireboxes on the L&HR Consolidations.
    I guess time to rework my spare time priorities now.... - Mark -

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks for the comments - yeah - I take a bit of poetic license with my colors - as I think when you spend all that time creating details - why obscure everything with a black - black really doesn't look good in the sim... I'm also big into weathering so that pretty face will get some miles and road dirt before release...

    Hi Mark,

    Hah - I grew up a mile or so from the tracks on Ridge Road - well after steam - near Maybrook - one of the crossings modeled on Rich's route... In fact we used to hang out down by the bridge when we snuck a beer or two from our parents while growing up... Yeah - the Consolidation is the beast and the LHR Mountain was the beauty - when I get the Consolidation done - I have some upgrades planned for my Mountains as well... Just the other day I was looking at their 80's series Mikado's and just about all the components used on the Consolidation are also used on the Mikado - I may be able to do them on the cheap - we'll see...

    Regards,
    Scott
