Looking good Jerome!
BTW,
one the workbench right now, another Canton SW 700/1200 ! :cool:

Since I already have 1203, I guess this one will have to be 1201!

Karl, who makes the decals for that??
Nobody Jerome :(

Athearn did a run of them, all dummies, a few years back for the Canton as "promotional" goodies and for stockholders. Occasionally one hits fleaBay, but I have found both of mine locally, one from my LHS, and this 1 at an auction in a box full of Lionel stuff! :eek: I had to outbid folks for the Lionel stuff to win the lot with the Canton engine in it!

This one is currently getting its driveline finished and a decoder installed ,,,,,,still waiting on handrails to arrive.
but back to decals,,,I did a baaaaad baaad thing,,,I picked up the last ones cab with my thumb still damp from thinner, and promptly released words from my mouth that would make Lucifer blush. Then I had a thought. place the cab good side down on the scanner, and throw a towel over it. what I got was an actual sized image that I was able to trim away much of, then tile the image on a sheet of decal paper. Instant decal. Recoat the bad side, decal and dullcoat, slight edge touch up with a fine point Sharpie, recoat and install. Looks ok to me!

Can't do anything without those cheaters Karl. Blind as a bat close up these days. Time for bi-focals I think.

Rick, those will either end up in the A&P blue scheme or a light gray for JTEX, not sure which yet.

More color and parts added today. Still need to paint the sills and pilots black.
