Well, my wife and I finally settled in to our new place and it's time for an update! I recently purchased a new in the box revised version of the MDC/Roundhouse outside frame 2-8-0. This version was updated in January of 1998 and is slightly different than the original, pre-1998, version. Differences include...
I already have an original pre-1998 version of the loco with the NWSL re-gear set installed and a can motor to install. I'm thinking of, if possible, combining the two kits to have the nickel silver drivers and wheels and make it easier to lower the boiler on the frame to make it look more like a D&RGW C-21 otherwise I will need to think up another way.
Check out the page titled "Assembling the Revised Roundhouse HOn3 OSF 2-8-0" page for tips and techniques on assembling a smooth running model you will be proud of in the end!
