Hi All,

I recently got an MTH 2-10-0, but I didn't like the platform on the Tender.  So I decided to model a new one and here are the results.  I will be posting this in the downloads section.

I made the holes on the underside for the steps small they can be expanded to allow the screw to fit in case the screws were different.  I expanded mine to 5/64 which was snug for the screws.

Hi Y'all,

Thanks for the comments.

To answer your questions, yes, I 3D printed it here at the house.  It took about 45 minutes on the highest quality setting.

I did get a shorter coupler - basically the shortest I could find that was compatible with the ERR board.  I have a picture of it below put together.

I agree a Kadee would look good if I ran with Kadees.     But it would probably be easy to update the model with the Kadee mount.

Here are pictures of it painted and installed:

Here's a video of the upgraded engine (ERR with new lighting).  The red flashing lights under the cab are the Evan Designs Campfire LEDs I use to simulate the burn.  And sorry for the crab claw on the front - I'm double heading this with a 2-8-0, so I needed it.  I also did not have the smoke on, but it works like a champ.
