I have been working on the smokebox detail on my 1.5" K-4 this summer. My plan is to complete the remaining detail work on the smokebox as well as install the exhaust stand and blast nozzle by the end of the year. My intent is then to spend 2018 working on placing a detailed jacket on the firebox and boiler. I still have quite a bit of detail work to complete on the smokebox to include the classification light mounts, running boards and various steps and handrail brackets, etc. I will install the automatic train control box once I get the loco running. The steam delivery pipe detail tested my limited abilities as I ended up just about using all the tools in my shop to include welding and brazing. Time consuming - but fun.
