Same here!  I had no idea.  Makes me want to go get one and build it!  But I've got so many projects as it is...  And I think this one cost as much for the kit as I spent in materials for the Pennsy I'm working on now.  And I should have a a lot of material left over when I'm done! (Well, maybe... :embarassed:)

I really have enjoyed following along with your build here, John. Thanks for taking the time to share it with us.

OK, I have  to correct my statement there.  This kit costs much less than what I spent for materials for the Pennsy switcher.  Like by half. So I was WAY wrong.  Just had to set that straight! :)

And I just can't get over all the detail they put in this model.  Just wonderful!

Thank you all.

This deAgostini set of machined parts and materials exceeded my expectations. The step by step illustrated instructions were very detailed.

I would recommend this kit without hesitation.

 If anyone wants a break from machining their own parts from scratch or plans, this kit would fill the bill - like assembling Meccano when you were a kid!

Check out the C57 if you are tempted. I like its design with the larger six drive wheels and the distinctive smoke deflectors.

Cheers...John
