    Nearly 20 years ago when I was active in scratchbuilding models, I attempted by far, my most challenging project. Having already scratch built 4 or 5 models I wanted to try something more extreme. For a half dozen years I was building G Scale (1/29th scale) models. These are rather large. I wanted to do a steam locomotive next. Something feasible, something I could complete and not give up half way through. I decided to do a replica of the Pennsylvania Railroad B6sb Shifter. I like working with styrene so this model is nearly all made of it. Sheet, tube, angles, etc. all cut and fabricated to build the model. Very few commercial parts were used. Drivers, Tender Trucks and Couplers mainly, plus a few detail parts. First I built the cab and it came out great so I just continued until the very last step of the project. Of all the models I had scratch built this one is in the top 3 of my favorites. It still sits proudly displayed in my collection.
