MWaz Get off your duff challenge
I was able to get some time in on the H9 this weekend.
Got the tender straightened out and looking back to normal.

When I relocated my test track to the shelf above my work bench I really realized how much the silver can motor could be seen in between the air compressor and firebox:

So, I painted it black. I also re-installed the brake shoes.

I had been wanting to add a coal load to the tender for a while now. I started with a piece of blue foam insulation:

Whittled it down to size:

And shaped it a bit more:

Painted it black and glued it into the tender:

Once in the tender, I painted on some white glue and sprinkle on some real coal dust. Then set the coal with some diluted white glue and let dry overnight:

Here are a couple of shots after glue has dried overnight:

Before I can get the cab finished I have to do some weathering first. Hopefully, I may get to that today Thumbsup .
