That's an excellent job that you've done with the loco, and the layout looks intriguing too.
What sort of prototype is it to be based on? And is it a 15 or 18"?

G'day Alexandra
Loco looks really good with the overhead pickup on board.
Interested to see the overhead wiring when you build it.
Layout is also coming along well.
Seasons greetings
