Z26 Class Steam Engine returns to life.....

Quite a few years ago I scratch built out of brass a model of a NSWGR Z26 class 2-6-2, only trouble is I made it to fit on a Bachmann 0-6-0 chassis. So it never really ran well.....

A couple of months ago I decided it was time to do something for a model, that potentially had a new lease of life left in it. So I started to go about designing how it would go together. Marked out some brass, drilled the chassis, soldered it all together, installed the motor and put the gears in, quartered the wheels, made some pickups and now she's a goer....

Just need to clean up the bodywork and prepare a better paint job.
