A Swedish American ten wheeler.

Hi all!
I have just completed a brass locomotive build for a client.
It is an HO scale model of the Richmond built ten wheeler "Albo".
The original locomotive:


It was built in 1900 for the Swedish railroad "Ystad-Eslöfs järnvägar".
The model, which has a chassi from a Bachmann ten wheeler, was a really tricky build.
That was mostly due to the fact that there is just that photo that is available, and the building manual left a lot to own interpretation....
Here are the pics of the finished model:








I am really satisfied how it turned out though.

[:D]

You should be happy with how it turned out - it's beautiful!  Do you have any photos of the build process?

Beautiful! Thanks for sharing. It's always enjoyable to see European modelling, especially of this quality.
