We have an old LGB 2117D, very much like this one:





I decided to redo it to make it look somewhat more modern and somewhat like the forneys that the Washington and Old Dominion, our long defunct local line, used around 1900









I stripped the LGB decals off, repainted it, decal'ed it, shortened the steam dome and added a new stack, made from a piece of brass from a deadbolt lock assembly we had sitting around and never installed. The headlight and whistle are from a bachmann big hauler. The paint scheme is borrowed from Brian Donovan. I repainted the number plate and added numbers to match the headlight









It's not finished yet but it's getting close. What I'd like to do is turn it into a forney, but I don't have the skills or the know how

LowNote,



Nice beginning.



One question: What did you do with the old stack and lamp? :D I keep adding diamond stacks and removing electric lamps to 'age' my locos.
