Built on the top of a Kato N-gauge 11-103 motorized unit, I'm building this loco basically around this Grandt Line "Porter Engineer" metal casting. I want him to appear to be at the controls. I've seen too many models where the driver seems ill fitted to the model or after the fact the modeler tries to find a figure that fits. This time the engineer will have a custom cab build around him!
Some of the detail parts I'm getting off a Tichy Train Group HO scale COALING TOWER LIFT MECHANISM (Part Number: 8008).
It has lots of neat parts that can represent controls.
