I took another Lionel 736 off the shelf and beat it into a CNR U1b Mountain (or at least a reasonable facsimile thereof馃). I've included some random shots during construction in no particular order. One shot of an original Berk and my previous attempt at a 4-8-4 #6153, which I may re-build later, after building a new tender for 6035.

Incredible work. Looks great. Are the plumbing bits like the feedwater heater styrene too or brass castings?

Pete, the feedwater heater is part of the boiler front casting and needed detailing. The air and feed water pumps are castings from Lionel. I made the pumps for my tank engine before I knew that I could buy them!馃ぃ馃ぃ

Thank you John. It was more fun and I think turned out better than the perishing Train Master!馃ぃ

Cool project. It is a very handsome loco. Good detail work, too.

Just very nice over all.

The tender is finished so she is all wrapped up. (please excuse the fact that I had the shell off and didn't reposition the hand rails before I took more pics!)

Thank you. I used Tamiya blacks and some greman grey as well as Testors gloss coat, dull coat and flat black to get some tonal variation. Also some red brown and gun metal here and there.
