I'm going to try and see what I can do with it. It deff is train like right now. Add the boiler, and put it on a set of tracks, it's ready. I'll start with the biggest blunder being the cowl. If I can get that looking ok, it just might end up ok

Maybe it would be easier to make it a train. Add a 5hp motor and a smoke stack and the kids would have a ball putt putting around the neighborhood.

That's along the lines of what I'm thinking, after weighing the options. A T bucket body is $479 and I have fiberglass supplies and marine grade plywood in racks to make the floor. It really does not make sense to mess with the cab at this point.

I'm going to paint the cab with rustoleum products so that I can sit it behind the shed and not have it rust away until I can do something with it
