As mentioned elsewhere, shooting photos of weathered models is somewhat iffy. Small. otherwise reflective items such as rivets now soak up the light instead, making them appear to melt into the surface of the model. Oh well.

This #41 has received what I consider to be a fairly heavy weathering job. One that befits the perpetual lack of adequate finances of that worthy operation.

Noteworthy locomotive-specific details visible in this photo include

  • A welded, convex ended air tank atop the tender. ( That's a bleeder valve atop the tank in case you were wondering. )
  • "Wood" coal boards.
  • Full length riveted patch at the bottom of the tender side.
