NW2 gets handrails.

Well one of the NW2's I've been painting is getting a handrail
treatment and was wondering what everyone has to say
about it.
I used Athabasca's handrail set that is used for the
Lifelike SW9 CN conversion. It's not quite right for the B&M
but I think it's close enough. What are your thoughts??  :)

Nice install!  Does the Athabasca part come as one piece, or as individual stancions and rails?

They come as one part.

Progress has been slow on this but this morning I found a very disturbing
fact about the handrail set from Athabasca that I am using. They are to
tall!!!!! Something that I can't live with. I was able to overlook the stanchion
type but this just won't do. They won't go to waste though. They will end
up on a Lifelike SW12 switcher in CV paint. Just gonna have to rethink this
as to what to do now. :(

They still look great, though.
