I have now added the side frames and battery boxes to my E499.0 project. I have also painted the interior "electrical" green.

I am modifying a Tillig BR86 to a CSD class 455.2. Using the Austrian version avoids the need to paint out all the red. The bumps on the front have been removed along with some of the piping and I've added a grab iron, boiler piping and a coal bunker extension. Next will come paint, new nameplates and weathering (which should hide any poor modeling).

I slapped a little paint on the 455.2. Just some weathering and new plates to get done.

CSD, the coal bunker extensions have a fantastic wood look when done. If it's not a secret, how did you achieve this?

Many do not realize that tank locos were also used in early US short line rail roads.

It wouldnt be toofar fetched to paint out the red, remove bumbers and add microtrain coplersto convert a German tank to a US tank.

Think what a BR-01 might look like too. Close enough to a Pacific???
