I’m working on an articulated joint like the lionel scale K4’s use. Also cut about 1/8” out of the boiler right behind the smoke box. I think it looks better,  ot sure its worth the effort lol. But this was a $60 parts purchase and I figured what the heck. Tge last photo is a stock Williams K4 versus the modified one.  Am I on the right track? Any suggestions?  Thanks.
