An image google shows that the B&A pacifics with the front end throttle were numbered above 590, and the throttle rods did pass through the sand box.  HTH Bill

Henry, Don and Moose thank you for the kind encouragement.
 
Dan, I would very much be interested in checking out the sand dome, thank you.
 
Bill, The set of plans I have shows it well. I had to look at them a few times before I was convinced. I never seen another example like that.  
 
I spent a few hours Saturday at Bob Deans. He officially ended my mostly spectator status by giving me a bunch of "homework" and marching orders.  
 
Now to find time between Christmas Pageant rehearsals and other planned functions so I can make some chips.

Hi guys, I just wanted to give a quick status report on this build. I have temporarily "parked" the Pacific project. With the recent passing of Peter B. I have not only lost my friend but my "home track" and equipment storage as well. As a result the 0-6-0 in in the garage occupying the stand the pacific  should be being built.
 
The good news is that with the 0-6-0 home, I can tinker on it at night after work. I am finally able to address some odd quirks and items I have wanted to deal with.

Totally sympathise with your predicament, It must be so hard to get going again until you find a new direction.  The Hudson is too nice a project to be put on hold.
Maybe a long rail ramp and put the 060 under the bench. or another stand behind the mill, with a thick cover to keep the dirt out.
In my last place I had a 10 x 6 shed with a removal wall panel leading to under the bench.

I started tinkering with the Pacific again. I am trying to make parts at home, but I lose incentive quickly in my un-airconditioned Florida garage/shop. It is like a sauna.

I got her on her drivers. I really have too many irons in the fire and this old girl is not getting the attention she deserves. Maybe when we get the track expansion done and the new car barn and the grates for #404 and the new body for Linda's critter and the new reworked body details for the NW2 and..... well you know......
