While cleaning this locomotive today I decided to replace the front skirt with the optional skirt included with the locomotive. Roco includes many detail parts for most of their locomotives, but not all are able to be used if the front coupler is installed.

After removing the old front skirt and coupler mount I replaced a spacer piece and then the new skirt. Many hoses and other odd fittings were installed including a prototypical dummy coupler. It adds a lot to the realism of the model and looks more prototypical now with smooth lines and no bulky front coupler.
