I'm disappointed by the lack of Mariachi music. But otherwise, awesome (as usual).

Next one, I promise!  Well, for the SJC anyway.

All you need is a movie crew and you can run it whenever you like!

And a guy with an easel.

The little SJC Porter makes a fine flatcar load until I finish the DCC install!

@Chris333 That’s just cool AF. I’d better place a big order with Toma Models then!

One of those 4 locomotives still exists
http://www.rrpicturearchives.net/showPicture.aspx?id=3597658
The Detroit Yukon Mining Co. bought 4 of them. I forget the exact facts, but they only used them for a very short time. They were used for other construction projects before being abandoned.

That photo really illustrates how small that thing is!
347 is far from a giant engine itself and it towers over it.

I just noticed, although you may have addressed this since the last photo posted here.  Can I ask you to consider laminating a small piece of 0.005" styrene over that front coupler box?  It might disguise that coupler box a little once painted to match the pilot.

Not a bad idea! A very thin strip of styrene might be able to make it look like the pilot beam is continuous.
