Very nice job. Has that beefy look that 2-8-0's run in the mountains had. I particularly like the paint job.

Håkan, another beautiful looking engine.
I think you have the Midas touch, when it comes to refurbishing these old engines.

Another winner Håkan! Excellent work! [:-thumbu]

And you're photography is first class as usual, which makes your threads that much more enjoyable- I may have missed it- but which camera and lens do you use?

Beautiful engine, Hakan. You inspired me to pick up a Roundhouse 2-8-0 on eBay for my own project.

Thanks Guys! I'm happy you all like it.

Thanks Carl, I'm using a Olympus E-PL5 with a borrowed lens Olympus 11-22 (which I have lent way to long[:-banghead]). And its the cameras doing that the photos look good, I'm a just a happy amateur

I think it came out kinda beefy like a Northern Pacific F1 consolidation. I'll give it some weathering so it lives up to the name Road Hog.

Back to the workshop,
Håkan

Håkan,
I've been away from the Forum for a while. I see that you've been busy in the back shops! This Loco is a real High-bred beaut!
Based on your input, I've installed a couple of the WOW sound decoders and all I can say is WOW.

Good to see you posting again,
Greg R.

Thanks Greg! Great that you also like them. The only thing i would wish is them to shrink a little so they are easier to install

Hi All,
been busy preparing for Xmas but some modeling has still been done between decorating the Xmas tree and baking. I have after I finished the 2-8-0 I continued on the landscape and one of the bridges. As a fond for wishing everyone a Merry Xmas here on the forum I thought the photo below would seem somewhat appropriate. Well it is not model snow but my still very wintry plaster landscape with the 2-8-0 and the new bridge.

Merry Xmas,
Håkan



Here are some less arid vistas from summer.






Yes! I should get some nails for the rails. It is a very precarious journey over the bridge without them[:-eyebrows]
