Good morning, everyone. 

It is with both joy and sorrow that I bring you a new beginning to the transformation of a stock Rivarossi C-Liner into hopefully, a masterpiece. 

A HUGE thank you to Tom D. for supplying the foundation, upon I shall build.

Day 1...

To prevent breakage of any parts, like the steps, I'm trying something different and mounting the shell to something a little more sturdy.

The pilot is gone, and something new is the seam for the front valence above the windscreen, where the horns sit behind.

The usual... the fan tops have been trimmed, the steam generator details have been shaved and the molded-in lift rings are cut off, as well as the existing FM exhaust stack.

Thanks,

Thanks, Ron!

BTW... this answers the question about the EMD exhaust stack location.

With the prime mover in the same location on the CPA-20-5 and the CFA-20-4, I'm going with the replacement EMD 567 would be in the same location. 

FYI... the Central did not replace the 1600 HP FM Diesel engines, just the 2000. 

Thanks!

Have you gotten a chance to work on the C liner?  Haven't been able to get hold of you, wondered how it was going.

Mario,

Just took notice that engine in the photo does NOT have the circular fan? housing up front behind the horns!

Simon

You betcha! You have an eagle eye.

the 4500-series unit’s were CPA-class and didn’t have dynamic brakes. I believe there was extra water storage there instead.

Mario,

Thanks! Couldn't see those 3 wheel trucks in the first photo! Good luck with the project!
