ALCO DL-202 'Black Maria'

Since the basic dimensions of ALCO's FA and its predecessor, the demonstrator DL-202 are almost the same a kitbash of a 'Black Maria' A-unit is mostly dealing with the modification of the nose and the side louvers & windows.
Some details (door handles, couplers, hoses, rivets and the mesh on the upper intakes) are still missing, but for a first impression here some shots of my model so far.



Some adjustment regarding the position of the shell on the chassis has to be done. also, the trucks are different to the standard AAR-type. Lack of the brake cylinders and a different shape of the equalizer bars are the prominent topics.
