With the weather being what it is here in the midwest, I haven't spent much time in the train room. I found these K-Line Alcos on ebay and immediately bid on them and finally won. They will be kitbashed into Toshiba EH-500s, narrow gauge (3' 6" gauge) engines, but mine will be standard gauge.
Here is my first attempt at a Steampunk steam engine. It is built on a Lionel chassis from the Thomas series. I have cut up a Lionel 027 2-dome tank car to be used as the boiler. The engine will be running backward when running forward as the motor area (shown at the right) is the back of the model and now it is the front.
