Well, I'm running full speed ahead on run #2 of the resin and photoengraved brass conversion kit for the Kato 11-105 chassis.  Check out www.randgust.com for more shots of the custom build I did for an SP Tiger Stripe unit.  It's going to take me a little time to chew through the waiting list, but if you want in this run send an email to 70-ton@randgust.com and I'll let you know when units are available.

I work in 12" = 1' too , so as you can imagine, getting this one done for my client (the Downeast guys) was PARTICULARLY satisfying.  They just had to say "steaming", didn't they.  As far as I know, the GE radiator was fine!

So, Richie, those great units you just finished are closer to prototype than you might imagine.  70-tonners most certainly pull tourists.
