This locomotive has been planned for a long time, but I never started construction until a few days ago due to my lack of parts in dark blue. I had been slowly accumulating pieces for many months and I finally decided it was time to start. It is meant to be paired with my first CSX locomotive, as it is the same model, but it will not be identical. For reference, here is the original: I've been taking photos as I go along. I like to start with the hardest parts first. Those small brackets make this easier. Need to visit the LUG's HQ to grab some pieces. I'm out of yellow cheese. Also out of 1x1 dark blue tile. Had trouble with this part. I think I matched every angle and offset in the prototype (#61). I made a "purchase" from the LUG HQ. The currency accepted is straight 9V track. Looks better with the holes filled in. Need some damn 2x3 wedge plates in dark blue! Angled and sloped windshield, a first for me. Held in place by pressure. Top of the hood was more difficult without 2x3 wedge plates in dark blue (they don't exist), but I think I made it work. Some cheating going on to get this photo, need some pieces in dark blue that don't exist yet. Happy with the back so far, but stumped on the top grill. For reference, here is the prototype: That's all for now. Out of town for the week.
