Since these were intended for the C-Liner the mounting varied slightly from how they are applied to the Erie-Built. For the most part I drilled holes in the top locations for the handrails and mounted them to the body while cementing them to a contact point on the lower area. The short handrails

at the rear had to be shortened to properly fit that area of the model. At this stage the body and chassis were re-assembled and a pair of Kadee No. 58 scale couplers were installed. The couplers were brush-painted with Floquil Rail Brown. The added details were brushpainted with Polly Scale Steam Power Black. The re-assembled model was then airbrushed with a formula I call Road Grime. This is a combination of Floquil weathering colors containing Grime, Dust, Rail Brown and Grimy Black thinned 90%. Once the completed model had sufficient time to dry I applied cab wind deflectors to each side of the cab. The model was then ready to place into service.

drilled through the bell, and then it was slid onto the wire and glued together with CA. After modeling a P1K C-Liner I admired the beautiful castings that were done for the handrails. Rather than make my own handrails for the Erie-Built, I checked with Life-Like to see if they had the C-Liner handrails available separately. As luck

I wish to give a special thanks to fellow modeler and St. Louis Mob member Dave Madman Davis for our brainstorming sessions.

These two views show the model with all the added details (minus the hand rails) and modifications prior to touch-up painting.
