A pair of images from recently completed HO scale AC&Y R2 #405. The engine weighs over 20 ounces and can easily pull a 20 car train up a 2% grade. That should translate to about 50 cars on level track.

That's a beautiful job.
How was it done?

It started as a PFM USRA light mikado. It has brass and resin details, many are one of a kind. The valve gear is precision scale, the tender is resin.
