I finished the cab and roof as well as some detail parts in that area and the Johnson bar.
I still need to do the window frames which will go on after the cab decal and clear coat.

I have been working on the tender the last couple of weeks.
Dennis cut out the tender truck side frames and axle boxes. They are sprung with about 3.5 lbs. per truck which will keep them bottomed out and still will keep everything on the track.




A few goodies are scratch built.






A very large (7300 gal.) was made to fit but It was a little too high and was lowered by 1/8"


Fuel tank and hand pump are added.


It is painted and decaled

A fascinating build Bill. I like the MILW road but never came across this Class before. Maybe as it was mainly in the NW, as you mention, might be the reason I have never read of it.
I am not into live steam - hands too shaky for small work - but I do like reading and seeing LS models. MLS is one of the few railroad fora where LS is at the fore.
I guess, along with others here, we await seeing it run.

I'm a bit late to this party...

First, what an amazing build!

Second, it looked familiar so I went digging and found (and scanned) one of the five photos (that I have) which my grandfather took during his first job as a newly graduated civil engineer. He went to work for the C M & St P in 1909 as they were finishing the Pacific extension through the Bitterroot Mountains in Idaho. The photo is of an N-1 2-6-6-2 taken in 1910 or shortly thereafter. The N-1's were rebuilt by the railroad into N-s's like Bill modeled. Since the N-1s were built in 1910-1912, this loco must have been nearly new (not that it looks it) since my grandfather only worked a few years for the railroad. Note it's a compound, as built.

You got pretty close by uploading it to a photo album. The "Quick Reply" box that I am using as a little yellow icon with mountain and sun in it - that's the 'post pic' icon. I brought up your photo, right-clicked on it and slected "copy link location" then I went to the 'post pic' icon and pasted the link I had copied. Voila:
