Happy 4th To All!
I wanted Fireman Fred (Arttista #1407) to ride on the tender and be removeable....to aid future access to Tsunami, wiring, etc..  First - I held him upside-down against a block of wood while drilling #60 hole 3/16" deep in leg.  Small drop of ACC to fasten .035 brass wire in hole....trim to 1/4".  Glue shovel to hand & foot with gap-filling ACC.  Locate spot where Fred is to stand and drill #60 hole thru tender floor.  Not absolutely necessary but I added a small piece of .125 styrene under the floor to deepen the hole.  "Plant" Fred.  Bend wire if needed to adjust posture.  Can now stand Fred anywhere on the layout that I can drill a #60 hole.



Fireman Fred on his "peg".  The engineer is Arttista #1403.
