Detailing a Roundhouse Boxcab
Over the last few days, I scratchbuilt the many details specific to Erie #20 boxcab. Over its life, this locomotive saw many changes to its cooling devices and exhausts. I decided to set the model in its later appearance when the paint scheme was simplified in the mid-50s. This locomotive, with boxcab #19, was scrapped in 1958. I'll only need to add details to the pilot and the model will be ready to be painted and decalled.
