This is a mixture of 3 Climaxes into one. The first one fell from a shelf, making the engine worthless. Another one was ordered and that was ran once and left in a box. The next time I pulled it out the motor was blown (any idea how?). That was sent back to Bachmann and they placed the cab, water tank, and coal bunker onto a unlettered Climax. 3 days ago It was sent back to me and today I switched out the smoke box doors to get the 9 on the number plate. I still have to put on the diamond stack and it will be finished.

Hello Guys,
While I know this is mostly an Eastern interest forum.
Here's one of my recent acquisitions.

 
Hey, a train is a train!  besides,  these days the trains mix up so much that its not so unusual to see something western out east, or vice versa, so its all a little interesting.

These would be a bit out of place on my layout, but I like camelback locomotives. Very nice models Frank. What is your current roster of these?

 I am sorry but I missed this post. You can seen this follow up date is very different.  
 From memory;
CNJ;
  Mantua 0-6-0c, HO train Co. cast 4-6-0c, Red Ball 4-6-0c, kitbashed - Mantua 4-6-0c, next two I did. Scratch-built bodies on Bachmann drives with kitbashed tenders are a I4 and a I5 2-8-0c camelbacks. Precision Scale K1 class, 4-8-0c.  
LV:
  two Ki class 4-6-2c camelbacks. One has a re-detailing done. The other is stock with a LV painting. two N1 class 2-8-2c camelbacks, last a E-28 4-4-0c I scratch built a body for placing it on a Rivarossi drive. It is the locomotive David Laury, number 5. This is one of the locomotives used to pull the Black Diamond on its original run and used until 4-4-2 arrived to replace the 10 4-4-0 types originally used.
P&R (Reading)
*  A few Mantua 0-4-0c camelbacks. A Gem, 2-8-0c.  
Cant think of ant more.

Hello Frank,
Have you ever seen one of these?  It is sheet brass and has a fine cast brass chassis.  You can tell it's a model of #6110.

 
 Sorry again for not answering till now but the brass model of the PRR T1 I have models like it but not sure who made it.

It is about time I did another post. I've been missing here on the HO forum. Here is a 4-4-0 camelback I made.  
  Hope I didn't post it in this forum thread already.

Here is a collage of photos of #5 with 4 Bachmann old time passenger cars I re-lettered for the Lehigh Valley. I used 4 different coach numbers. Got to find some decorative decal to overlay the original centered number on these cars. When you try to remove them you damage the car. Need to cover them over.

 If you didn't follow the build of it. A AHM 4-4-0 drive, its tender, and lots of sheet plastic. some plastic shapes, a piece of 1/2" brass copper pipe, and a lot of mistakes.

Nice collage Frank. Those coaches look good behind that engine, but of course anything would look good with it.

That is a road you do not see too often. I am a big fan of the GP7 since I they were regulars on the EL when I was a kid.

* Here you can see a private coal companies 0-8-0 steam locomotive.  
** It is the " Ashland Coal and Iron Railway". A very old Aristo-Craft HO die-cast model from the early 1960's. It is show broken down here with a broken rear truck. It is awaiting a repair crew from the Frankford Engine-house to jack it up and slide under another truck. Maybe we'll catch the action.

** A favorite locomotive I kitbashed a few years ago is seen just before last Thanksgiving. It is a Mantua RDG P7 I backdated to its original C1 class 4-4-4w. This Atlantic City speedster was to shaky in the turns  and was rebuilt with its other C1 class into the only Reading rear cab Atlantics the Reading owned. The Mantua model built in late 1940's and into the 1950's was a P7 class which I made into my C1 class #110.  
* Here is sits on the turntable.

 ***For those who haven't seen the thread on the building of this locomotive click on this link and I hope you enjoy it.

I meant to ask you about your model of the C1. For when you were doing the build, I noticed that you used a different tender. What company makes that tender, or was it scratch built?

 I guess you missed it. It is a Sparrow Point tender now made by Dan Hicks. Allentown PA.

I like this one very much - engines lettered for industry are not as popular as RR's. After the shops fix that rear truck, I'd like to see it switching cuts of hoppers.
