looking good.

its good to see a loco need reapiring because its been well used rather than a battered old "fix-me-up" thats seen better days.

we can tell its been really well looked after. out of interest where did the new wheels come from?
i have a friend that has a few tenshodo loco's of similar age and he seems to work wonders getting them to supply spare parts for them!

Scenario: paint loco, harden paint by placing in oven, temperature? ohh 150C!!!!!!! solder melts quite quickly, paint burns off and brass tarnishes like you wouldn't belive. I got a cheap loco, traded it for some passenger cars and have had great fun putting it back together.

he he! reminds me of the time i tried to warm the tires on my radio control car by putting it in the microwave!

those were the days.....

looks like you have done a really good job saving it though.
