For the last few weeks when I have time I have been converting a Broadway c16 from a D&RGW 278 to the ET&WNC #3. The process required me to completely disassemble the engine. Also did away with the BLI tender for a on30 2-6-0 tender.
I chose the to paint it similar to the as built look. With a lettering scheme from around 1900. I added a box headlight and brass stack to the boiler. The weight of the stack has made her a little better puller than the 6.
I also added electrical pick up to the tender and installed a tcs wow sound. That being said the headlight is programmed to firebox flicker giving the box light to look of a kerosene lamp.
I still have to add a wood load to the tender and add an air tank under the cab. But for the most part it is done.
Whatâ€™s next? Well Iâ€™m looking at trying to make another c-16 into the 1. But it will be a while on that as my summer schedule leaves little time to model.
