Have made some progress. Rob sent a belly fixture with each shell. I cut and spliced them to make 3. The center is probably for batteries and the other two are fuel. The rear tank is a little bigger as it also feeds the steam generator, I think. Raining or I would have posted it on rails and running. Maybe a bit before I do that, taking a foster dog today, LiG

Hi there Nick great job on that BP 20. I wish someone wouild make the castings in 1/32 scale and I would do suit. As I started late in US and Pennsy modeling I stuck to 1/32 scale to keep the visual right with live steam being mostly 1/32. What I would also like to find is an E7 or E8 in 1/32, as I used to ride behind them when I was student in NYU and would visit my mother in Massachusets on the PC era NYNH&H. Finding one of the Great Trains model in Europe is hopeless. Meanwhile the MTH PA1 does the honours. And of course live steam.
Progreess on my new layout is coming along nicely, soon I should be able to post some photos.

Bill and du-bousquetaire, thank you. Having fun for sure. Foster is doing fine, takes a lot of very worthwhile time. LiG

Someone sent me this pic of a beautiful lash up. Does any one know what that open panel in front of the windshield is for? Thank You. LiG

Nick;

This is just an educated guess, but perhaps it is access to the front sander fill pipe. On the streamlined locomotives, it seems that the designers did not like stuff like that to show, so they would hide it under hatches and panels.

Best, David Meashey

Found this site to be very interesting and does mention the sand boxes and shows the hatch in the numbered drawing but doesn't say what it was for but interesting read
