[CFF] The Resita is ready to run !!

Posted by Gerd on Tuesday, 16 January 2018


the last work is done on the Resita and the loco is ready to run.

Beside the paint on the cab, I added some last details as well, like the oil pump on the right hand cylinder or the sucker-pipe to take water. I used a white crayon to add the washed trim on the water tanks and bunker.

After the airbrush-weathering, I added the last details to give here the prototypical look of a well used Romanian logging loco. The number plates are custom etched, as the kit is delivered with 764-484 plates.

And here she is, finished and ready for first service – CFF 764-467 of the Cimpul Cetatii line in the 1992 version.

The loco was finished on Dec. 23rd. so I was able to run here during the annual X-mas-steam-up the next day.

Since the loco was finished, I took a break (hard to believe) and I’ll start with finishing the cars next week. So stay tuned, the Cimpul Cetatii story will be continued

Regards, Gerd
