Y2 and Y7

Here's a drawing of the Y7 based on a diagram in Bud Jeffries book, N&W
Giant of Steam.  I entered it in the "What If" contest at the NWHS
convention in Williamson some years ago.

It's been my understanding that the air pumps were put on the smokebox
because of clearance problems probably caused by boiler swing-out on curves
and the very large boiler diameter.

Fellow modelers: After a rather extended hiatus due to personal and family
illness I have finally been able to get back to doing one of the things I
enjoy most in life that being constructing models of N&W steamers. Attached
are photos showing the current status of my scratch model of a Y2. When the
tender conversion is complete it will go to the paint shop. Also attached
is a photo of my rendition of the never built Y7 as I visualized it would
have looked late in the steam era. I know a lot of rivet counters will be
dismayed to know that it is based on an old AHM model of an SP cab forward
with the wrong type drivers, valve gear etc. but I had the damaged model on
hand so I thought what the heck I will give it a shot and see what happens.
Some detail work is yet to be done and decals applied. Enjoy!
