This HO scale locomotive began its life as a Precision Craft Models Reading T-1 #2124. Using my Dremel tool, I removed the coal load and replaced it with a home-fashioned oil bunker and hatch. The factory painted name and number were scraped away and replaced with decals. Then, a little paint and a little weathering and voila. Don't worry, I didn't forget the ditch lights.
