As I said in another blog:
Mail for my neighbor across the street goes to the Central PO in Minneapolis 40 miles away
for sorting then return, so it takes days for a letter to be delivered in our small town.

Like the Postmaster doesn't know where the Museum mail goes.
But they have to play by the rules.

I remember when a picture of Alfred E. Neuman on the envelope would get
it to the offices of MAD Magazine.
Or when a girl at college wrote Grandpa & the ZIP code and it got to him
(Small MN town- she did have her return address tho.)

If you are wondering, I know you are, ZIP came in July/Aug 1963.

Tim: The package is in todays mail. :)

I am covering the mailing.

James thanks for the change - I am not where all my info is located.

Will try to get it out today.

Would like to see a picture when it is done.
Tim you could document the building and submit to Model Railroader
but they may not be taking soldering articles any more.

That is why I said "on my monitor" - (which means your results may vary) if you make the image match the dimensions
I gave for the cab all else should fall in place.-

I will endeavor to do a copy with a scale.

The instructions say HO

I took a few measurements (very few)

On the cab front:

The hole for the boiler = 3/4 inch,
It is 1 19/32 inches wide,
It is 1 11/16 high

Cab side = 1 5/8 not including the roof overhang.

Hope you can extrapolate from that.

The instructions indicate HO.

When I click on the above attachment it opens to about 90% size (on my screen)
As stated roughly 5 X 10. Get a scale out and enlarge your screen or shrink (for us old geezers)
to size.
