Painted, Lettered and Weathered for the ficticious "Goose Creek Railway" These represent moderate and realistic weathering that you'd find on most narrow gauge locomotives assigned to freight duty. The brass cylinder heads and headlight visor add a touch of class to this workaday locomotive without making it look garish. The weathering on the drivers is especially of note, as I used many reference photographs of American and South American Narrow Gauge steam for reference to get it correct. Also note the soot and light rust on the smokebox.
Goose Creek #4 is weathered more heavily than it's sister, #2. (see gallery) The heavier amount of dirt and sunfaded paint and lettering makes it remiscent of Cuban narrow gauge. The Broken cab window adds some interest to the fireman's side as does the extensive rust on the tender. The Running gear is also more oily and grimey to show that #4 is the true workhorse of the railroad.
