California's Railroad to the U.S. 1861 - 1996
Drill and mount Walthers dress-up kit #822 to the shell. It will take all ladder grabs, unless a photo shows other wise.
Paint and decaling is all that's left; the entire B-unit is painted Engine Black and the decals used are Micro-Scale #155 SP MofW set. That is straight forward and everybody has their own way of doing that. After the body is completed add the windows from the dress-up kit.
With body completed, all that is left is the truck side frames. With Athearns plastic side frames, you can change the journals, so they match your prototype. Photos will help, as each truck could be different. When you have completed the journal modifications add your brake cylinders and air lines and the truck side frames are complete. Your Snail is now ready to power your Rotary Snowplow.
PARTS LIST FOR F7B SNAIL UNIT
Most Southern Pacific Motive Power Annuals/Reviews have at least one photo of a snail.
