Very nice!  I still chuckle that this beautiful model hides the fact that internally it is the crappy Bachmann 4-4-0!

The surviving parts that are Bachmann are only the worms and cup universal, the barest remnant of the plastic frame, side rods, and the axles.   It most closely resembles Johnny Cash's approach of 'built it one piece at a time' at this point.....
And your contribution was abandoning the Rivarossi pilot truck wheels for something I admit looks far, far better on the wheels.
