Yeah, that looks like a box full of fun for $150! Lots of good stuff there. Looking forward to seeing the progress.

One of the locos is a 290 body shell only. Thank you for your welcome. The date stamped on the inside of the shell is February 1950. The other loco is a complete 290. I have not cracked it open yet to see what date is stamped on the inside. The tender has no other distinguishing marks other than American flyer on the side. I am not that experienced yet to be able to distinguish between different models. I'm sure there was a ton of 290s made.

The tender for a 290 should only have American Flyer on the side, no heralds.

Well, I decided to work on the 752a seaboard coal loader. I dismantle all the components from the metal base because I wanted to be bead blast all the rust and paint off the base surface. I purchase black crackle paint and green accessory paint from port line hobbies to maintain the original finish. with some trial-and-error I was able to get it pretty close.I cleaned and polished all the component pieces. I repainted the tower, chute, clamshell, and storage bin. Upon reassembly I had some issues with the clamshell. Thank-you Cramden and Trackman for your help. Some things just work on gravity. My next project will be the 290 locomotive.

Your coal loader looks great. Good job. I have a 290 that needs to be repainted.
Lots of paint flaking. I will get to it someday.
