I finally finished painting my Dunkirk engine. No longer big John. I am pretty happy with the wway it came out. We also had a nice 65 degree day yesterday. Perfect day to test the engine out. I only had to dig out the back of the layout from a snow drift that does not want to go away.


Dunkirk on the display track with the wood sides and without(I think I like it without the wood sides).








I also painted the inside and addeda little detail

Shawn,

I like your Dunkirk very much. I agree it looks better without the high wood sideboards although if you lowered them by one board height and loaded more split wood behind them it could look much better and a bit more "back-woodsy".

Thats all I buy is HLW stuff. You cant go wrong. Where in PA are you. Im close to Milford PA (poconos)

Stan thanks: I have to agree the decals look great

Bob,

I like 'curious-looking' engines. What is the one you have pictured on your signature block (or whatever that's called?) A cab-forward--is there a chance of getting a bigger pic?

Thanks,

Les

If you look at Dwight Ennis' signature you'll see another model of the NPC Engine No. 21, only it's a live steam version in brass. Here's a link to Dwight's topic in the MLS archives.

Thanks very much, Steve.

I did the 'save target as' routine and wound up with the archive on my desktop. Worked like a charm.

I appreciate your efforts very much.

Les
