Looks good.

I may need to send my shortened U25b to you. It got across a switchpoint, shorted the track, and either took out some land patterns or the rear motor block before it tumbled to the floor. The 60 foot scale drop (give or take) to the floor did surprisingly minor damage to the outside, but things rattle inside as well as the rear motor block not feeding power into the engine. I just haven't had the guts to open it up and rebuild it. I have the new motor blocks and Revolution that it needs, just not the ambition. It is, however, starting to look like a well used switcher!

Your work is an inspiration to go get it off the shelf and break loose some screws.:)
