Baldwin RP-210 of NYC's 'Xplorer' - model in 1/29

Baldwin RP-210 - a low-slung, diesel-hydraulic locomotive for the lightweight Talgo-train

NYC's RP-210

I use a USA-Trains PA as a starting point - lowering the shell, making a new nose & roof, re-arranging the trucks...fortunately I was able to buy a 'basket-case' for this with damages on shell and trucks - not really cheap but almost perfect for this project (not too much regrets when slaughtering the unit).

- Baseline for nose has been assembled
- The front truck will lose its center axle
- Shell still has to be shortened by 2"
