Its my understanding that the green paint was a load of left over army stuff that was gotten cheap, ditto for the San Juan set. 

Depression era stuff, get it from where you could.

Just small point, that pipe at the back aint a sand line mate, its the water feed from the tender.

I had the same problem, I dont use sound so I take out the chuff switches, ditto on Shays and Climax. Solved it fo me to. Dave has the nail on the head, trying to activate a pressure sensative device (contacts) off a floppy bunch of loose drive mechanisms is ludicrous IMO.

As K-27s are of an interset right now you might like Rod's Is now finished, its 1.22.5. a bash from a 1.20.3 Bachmann consolidation.  Here is a link to his gallery.

Charlie, I could nt agree more about the Mudhen book.

My friend Rod Hayward has been tearing his hair out in the UK trying to lay his hads on a copy.

It's my understanding that is out of print ?

Anybody heard any reports about the running of the loco on that day out?

Was it prototypical, i.e. did it waddle off the track much ?  Grin

I believe thats just an optical illusion caused by the perspective of converging verticles. Take a look at this, looks parallel to me. 



I've got loads of pics and they all look like this.

Yep, fix that stack and the way too short front steps up to the running boards.
