* Another view with the cab almost done. My first attempt to make a removable roof failed. I did make a very nice frame with a roof attached. My mistake was to use thicker plastic for the roof. It looked very good but next morning it had straightened out breaking the whole removable roof.
This view is from after the disaster.

Because the engineer was hidden in a cab with windows of this style, I made the center and the rear window one. I am done with this loco for now but will go back and reshape the large read windows a little better. Like always another project for a friend has started.
* Here is the finished for now bell of the eighties.

* Hi Henry! That is my display stand that came with a Franklin Mint Cresent Pacific. Loco is long gone. Stand remains.

I actually looked it up to see if there was an actual ECI railroad, your paint scheme is so plausible. Love the proto-freelance concept.

And the F units pull the Passenger Train out of the yard in Anderson to begin its trip down south to Westport.

I thought it was a great station that fit right in with the layout.
