4.  Wear sturdy shoes, not flip flops, slippers, sandals, etc., so you don't trip over yourself.

5.  Clear path of any potential trip hazards.

LOL, you have a ritual for transporting your model!  :D
But on a serious note, it is a very smart idea.  Especially with all the work you did and time you spent on it. It is almost like raising a kid!  ;)

Well, it's 3 years old now.  And you know, 3 year-olds can be a real handful!

LOL! True. While I don't have any kids (that I know of  :) ), I've been around plenty of 3-year-olds.

Max,

Your level of detail is simply amazing and your work is stunning.  Every time I check this thread my mind is blown!

Excellent photo, Chris!    Thank you! 

#5 is almost identical to the #4 that I am building.  There are only the most subtle differences.  For example, notice that on #5, there are no sliding horizontal windows in the top, front wall of the cab.

And as always, it's a shot of the right side.  High resolution shots of the LEFT side of these are very hard to come by.  I have exactly ONE, and it was taken in the 1930s, before many of the modifications that appeared in my 1948 version were done.

I finally got around to making some new video of it running in its present state.


In the interest of full disclosure...  it suffered a catastrophic slip of one of the front drivers in the axle tube.
My scheme of having a flat ground on each metal half-axle, then pressing them into the Delrin tube, and then
inserting a pin through the Delrin tube up against the flat didn't quite hold.

So I disassembled the driver axle and improved it.  I cut a thin slot right into the end of the axle with a thin Dremel disk.
Then I reassembled the axle halves into the Delrin tube.  Now when I inserted the pins through the Delrin tube,
they go into a SLOT in the axle, with Loctite.  Bronze pin, in steel axle slot with Loctite.  Metal-on-metal in a slot will hold like iron.  I am confident that it will never slip again.

Max, that's just amazing.  It would be amazing to get any 0-6-0 to run that well, let alone a scratch built one.  AND it's beautiful!

I love that you thought it necessary to call out that you hadn't made your own LEDs!

"...We're not worthy, we're not worthy..."  :o

Good grief, what on earth are you planning on doing for an encore?

Perhaps on the next one, you will indeed make your own LEDs...
