I am building a layout here, I might seem that all I do is build Steam Engines but, their is a modest model railroad being built too.
Here is part one;

This is the current track plan;

For the last two years I have been focused on build two detailed models of 1870's Moguls that are currently hard at work in 1886. The Girls works hard but are well maintained. I am using the wagon top Moguls of the Virginia and Truckee RR as my prototype drawing heavily from Engine number 4 and 13. In build these two engines I have been relying on 3D drawing and printing on a backbone of conventional model making techniques.

Let the fun continue...

Thank you Dave,
I'm really glad the pumps worked out. The plates are super nice but when you zoom in close enough to reed them you see the flaws in my painting. OH well, the whole picture is pleasing.

The Builders Plate looks particularly sharp. And the crosshead pump is a nice touch, seldom modeled.

On May 8, 2017, I shared my first drawing and announced my Mogul building project. Tonight With this picture I share what I am pretty sure are the last prints I need for the Two engines. That I think is a milestone that needs to be marked. Engine #5 needs very little, These parts, window glazing and a decoder. Engine #6 needs Total final assembly and painting. Both need decals. I'm debating whether to decal #5 now of after #6 is also ready.
Here's the last prints;

Oh! they are the main Air reservoir and a support bracket for the compressor (a PSC casting). I used material found in the 1888 Car Builders Encyclopedia to guild their design.

Frank, Mike Thank you.

I'm now done with the front end.

I now move the back side of the engine to add a few details. A compressor goes into the notch in the running boards, a air tank under the cab and frame, glaze the windows and add a crew.

I might takes a little brake first.

Very nice!

That's amazing works Bob.

A little more to share. Pilot braces are in;

I was able to use Precision Scales's casting for C-16 braces.

A little more done;

Hi Mike and David, Thank you for the kind words. Especially on the color choices.

Nice work Bob!
I always liked this engine design and your coloring looks great on the loco!
Michael Hohn Posted - 07/07/2020 : 12:51:42 PM
A thing of beauty! I like the colors you’ve used. They are very classy.

railman28 Posted - 07/07/2020 : 11:52:40 AM
Almost there;

railman28 Posted - 07/01/2020 : 6:20:07 PM
A little progress. This is the last Mechanical addition to this mogul, the external water pumps.
I just need to add some cosmetic details to the boiler.

Thank you Scott, I appreciate the comments. Right now I'm wishing the mix included better painting skills.
