Not sure which model you are working with....If its one of the glossy black engines, you might consider using a black patch made from sign vinyl to merely hide the lettering underneath. Afterward, you could apply new vinyl lettering or decals on the patch and you could also add a border to further camouflage it. This could be ideal if you decide to sell the engine some day. This is what I did with my Ruby years ago:

I'm sure there is as much fact as there is fiction, in the story. I think the trains are a good representation of the real thing. If you think back to the fifties and sixties, when westerns were popular, the characters then were probably as far from the truth as one could get. Don't forget the studios had to cater to contemporary hair styles and behavior.

Problem is that would mean all the banks and financial institutions would have to pay tax they don't currently pay on the profits they make shifting money around the globe.
Money laundering of ill gotten gains would be eliminated.

Basically the King couldn't remove it !

STEVE,! water right! Good one.

It looks like I will need to add a bit of foundation to get the needed height for the tallest of my engines, the 2-Truck Shay. It measures 8-7/8" from the top of my roadbed (bottom of the ties) to the top of the stack. The track is from SVRR, code 250 aluminum. This engine is also the longest of the three at 22-7/8" coupler to coupler, I use body mounted Kadee 1908s in the L&P coupler box so the 3 section base kit should be fine.
