Dale, Are you aware that Kozo extended the front end of the loco...? He did this to allow a carrying bar to affix to the front end, so as to allow for easier transporting of the engine.. It's also why those two holes are in the rear frame, for a bar to fit through. Anyway, Myself and others are going to be shortening up the front end back to the prototypical dimension. As far as we can tell, it needs to be shortened by about 13/16"
I don't know if this matters to you or not, but it looks a little odd when looking at the side elevation drawing that was in the July/August issue...

I hope I can keep up with this thread. I love locomotives and have several of Kozo's books for future inspiration.

Looking great!

Are you planning to install steel tires on those cast brass wheels??  I would think that brass would be a bit too soft to last for any length of time when used as a driver.

Hi Dale,

In the early days thus it was. However since then we have broadened the forums scope and we welcome your loco build.

Best of all you have posted it in the correct board within our forum.

I hope that clears it up for you.

Best Regards
Bob

Good thing too. I love locos and if they were not welcome here...well that might be a sadness I could not live with.  ;D

Keep at it Dale. It is appreciated by many.
