Modeling Notes
My first - and only - steam locomotive kit. It was bought on a whim at a hobby shop near my high school. I think it was supposed to be a READING locomotive, but I finished it for my favorite railroad at the time, the NYO&W. I know they had camelback locomotives, but I didn't know that they never had any 2-8-2C's, nor was I aware yet of their numbering scheme - hence the 2700-series road number.

I *might* repaint / re-letter this locomotive for my fictionalized version of the Elmira, Cortland & Northern - part of the Lake Ontario & Hudson River system. I might do that, but a greater part of me wants to keep this and my other NYO&W models from the 1990s as-is. These were my first modeling efforts and I am proud of them.
