Default brass 2-6-2 steam loco

just got this done...save for numbers and the "GN" on the tender. my dad got this as an incomplete brass kit, tossed it to me to finish it. well, it wasnt that easy...first off I had to scrounge for all sorts of missing hardware, screws and washers...then no way on the open frame motor, so a repower was in store, to do that, I had to build a mounting bracket for the can motor, then I had to re design the drive train, that required supporting one end of the drive line, modifying the worm gear, moving a main crossmember in the frame....ect. last I had to make allowance for the new bearing and driveshaft support in the boiler shell and its weight. now it goes to the layout for further testing and to get its DCC board installed.
