Scratchbuild Western Maryland I2 2-10-0

Have been building this loco in n scale.
Strictly on a budget and no way a rivet counting job.
As long as it looks and fits in with my fleet I'll be happy !.
Boiler shell from a dry marker pen, piping and hand rails from 0.32" Lockwire , air tanks and pumps from cocktail sticks, smoke stack from biro , sand dome from curtain rail hook, other parts plasticard.
Fits on a minitrix chassis tender is in it's early stage of transformation from a Bachmann northern 4-8-4 oil tender with eight wheeled bogies to coal tender with six wheeled bogies.

Well, I have to say from the detail I can make out that looks amazing. Considering the scale you are in and the materials you have co-opted it is without doubt a brilliant piece of work. Well done. R-

That looks good, well done. Not the easiest of locos to build.

It looks excellent. A tiny scale to scratchbuild in and not an easy loco either.
