Brand new CNR H12-44 roadswitcher #1658 has returned to her home terminal at Leetown after completing her first roundtrip revenue assignment to Port Maitland.All new locomotives arriving in Leetown are sent to Port Maitland on their first trip as this is an ideal trip to test the engine's abilities and if there are any concerns,the mechanical department staff at Port Maitland are highly qualified to handle any issues---actually most locomotives return to Leetown in better condition after this assignment.In this photo #1658 is shown with a couple of Santa Fe reefers,no doubt filled with the first load of the season of Lake Erie perch which will iced and then shipped out on the next eastbound hotshot freight.

Is it a custom tool? The result is excellent.

Matt, thanks!
Tool is self-made from simple materials. After ending of tests I will write a bit more and I will show a first application.

First attempt of use of rivet strips on my small brass gondolas.

[Image: niet-streifen_test-01kk.jpg]

The upper strip is made from 0.005 styrene, the lower from 0.01 (0,25 mm), in both cases 0.080 wide.
I think that I should use the thinner strips however the position of rivets must be placed similarly to lower angle.
In any case, the new angles must cover the old ones which have been etched into the walls only.
Cheers, Bernd
