This was a gray MTH RK Challenger that I modfied. It now has a modified Lionel Vanderbilt oil tender, TMCC/RS 4.0, a Lionmaster Challenger pilot assy, scale operating marker lites, train indicator boards, and a scale bell assy. I repainted and decalled the loco.

This was a Lionel W&LE USRA 2-6-6-2 that has been repainted/decalled for UP. It now has a MTH RK Challenger centipede tender that I modifed with pickup rollers and added the TMCC/RS electronics/wireless tether from the 2-6-6-2 tender.

This started as a Lionel SP 2-8-0 with a Vandy oil tender. Painted/decalled for UP, it now has the coal tender from the Lionel 2-6-6-2. I modified the loco to slow it down, added 2 chuffs/rev and modified the pilot to include a coupler for double heading.
