Wow, Wayne. With cutting of that much cast detail on the boiler, it is almost easier just to scratchbuild a new one. :shocked:

:lolol: :lolol: :lolol: :yup:

... but you gradually get to be that way when you can't just toodle on down to the LHS and pick up an RTR "the paint-jobs-have-been-changed-to-protect-the-builder" diesel, fire up the air brush, float on some decalcomania, add a couple lift rings and MU cables, slip in a decoder and ...

... off you go, then, wink, wink, nudge, nudge!

At least Kevin's and Doctor Wayne's locomotives (despite the unique modeling challenges encountered when modeling Canadian motive power,) both have standard width fireboxes with the cab in the more traditional position at the rear ...

... does my own brand of off-center (pun intended) insanity (and E-Paw's, too) become a bit more understandable?

This is going to be a really nice build, Kevin ... I can see it coming! Your approach is thoughtful and that type of structured, disciplined beginning always yields huge benefits at the other end!

Build on!
