Left part of the frame (last photo) was broken off to free space for the locomotive engineer. (But it did not fit nevertheless). So you don't need to remove it if you do not plan to put an engineer in the window.

Three holes (marked by red arrows) can be used to fasten shell on the frame; they were made by factory, but you may need to enlarge them.

Thanks for those!

Hm, this is interesting - the BR 218 chassis I have is different from yours...

The piece with the three holes in the last picture - that looks to have been separately attached?

It was "start" version of BR218, I purchased it in 2012...

Yes, it looks like separate detail.

Ah, okay, I think mine is an older model.

Hmm, you are right. I have another BR218 (I purchased it later to build second ALCO FA) - it is different!

Nice to have friends in high places.

Getting the handrails painted sure makes the paint job pop. Looks great!

In fact, I have two BR 218s. It appears, they are different :o :

But I hope we'll be able to use second one for ALCO FA, too...

Naturally, mine is different! :roll:

I'll send a picture as soon as I can (I don't have Wifi at home, and my phone and computer don't like each other, so I can't transfer photos from my phone to my computer easily).

Really fantastic job!!!! I have several waiting on me to do that I hope to get to within the next couple of months. Where are you getting the number board decals from (I need a bunch)? Oh and how did you make the windows?
