@Ed Kapuscinski you missed something for the list.

You know what it is.
  • Strip and repaint tender

You should also strip the paint off the tender and repaint it!

Here's a Clerihew about Ed. K.

Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
But mention his law
and you've pulled your last straw!

Alternate version:
Ed Kapucinski
Every night, he plants a new tree.
He asks excitedly "Did you say Ménage à Trois?"
No, I said "Ed's Law."

Either that or he should find a Weaver B60 baggage car, letter it for the 'Railwire Express Agency' and load it up with a set of these:

Those are beautiful. But they're about 10 years too modern for what I'm into.

Wood reefers are weird: they always look older than they were.

Ed, In about 1969 I wrote a song titled "Connie, Please" !  The truth !! Seeing the Vid of yours I'm thinking maybe it was a premonition as it sure is pleasing to see your Connie !! M

When did they determine that the drivers would need counterweights?

They're there. They're just striped too.

The paint scheme is the same as this:

In fact, the famous 1223 is the same class of locomotive (a D16) although mine is the "flatland" version with larger diameter drivers.

Step one is admitting you have a problem.

Ed, does the engine in post #82 have counter balances on her drivers ? Is it that they are painted-on spokes that I can't see them ?
The Connie's balances in post #14 are painted with gold spokes but are visible. Not sure of the beautiful American, though.  M
