This past Friday (OMG Friday the 13th) I posted a thread on "What's on your workbench" outlining my 3 current, in progress, projects plus mentioning a new #4 project. This project has come about because cabforwards are hard to find and I don't have long enough to wait for one, sooo I decided to take my 3rd EM-1 and bash it into a cabforward, a non SP version being built in the backshops of the CD&WJV roundhouse. I am using my unmodified EM-1 chassis and changing out the cab for a DIY and adding an oil bunker to the coal EM-1 tender, plus adding 2 air pumps. Yes, I know there is a lot of sanding, filling, and sanding again, plus fitting the cab roof on properly. I paint these in white so that I can easier see all then scratches, dents etc. to sand out plus it is easier to apply the rivet decals. I have the following to add when the time comes: 1. KATO FEF overhead brass bell. 2. KATO GS 4 number boards 3. KATO GS4 cab hand rails 4. Keystone creations front pilot I will have to make a front headlight to attach to cab front, add some piping as needed, make the deck between the loco and tender, paint it all black, add decals seal the thing and then weather. I know, I know, I am an idiot but there were cabforwards on a couple of lines. I think one was experimented with by a Canadian RR.
