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...

It's time for the next installment, folks.

This time, we cover:

1. cylinder drain cock linages
2. front beam ladder
3. cab deck plate
4. cab and tender grab irons
5. main handrail
6. tender handrail
7. tender undercarriage brake hardware
8. tender rerail frogs and push pole
9. tender truck safety chains

As of today, there are only 15 steps left to go on my work list.  I think... I think... I am actually going to finish this model!

So let's get to it!

For the styrene I-beam:  Is there a reason for milling it from square stock instead of making it from 3 strips?
