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,

Mario,

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

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!
