I built up the superstructure of the Quencher Loco per plans on Dave Ayers page (see links).  I've made a few changes- I didn't go with the sloped roof and I used window castings instead of the more modern windows shown in the plans.  I hope this might, in a little way, backdate the locomotive.  In the center part of the locomotive I fixed five lead weights to help balance the locomotive and improve its running characteristics.  There actually isn't too much left to do but I need to buy additional window castings for the two doors and also build the interior of the cab and the electrical pickup arm.
