I never posted pictures of these commissioned models on my old website, but I am including them now for completion.
This HO-Scale Union Pacific C30-7, #2530, is an Atlas model that I was commissioned to work on in November 2007.
This was a stock factory painted Atlas model that didn’t need a lot of work.
It needed to have its handrails installed and painted and have the X2F horn-hook couplers replaced with Kadee couplers.
It also needed to have a pilot plow added.
I added the pilot plow and Kadee couplers and installed and painted the handrails.
