Thunder Mesa Mining Company's locomotive No. 7 is an 0-4-2 Porter named in honor of Disney animator Frank Thomas. Follow along to see how I upgrade this stock On30 Bachmann engine with custom decals, paint, details, and a new "Big Thunder" style laser cut cab. Complete step-by-step how to's on decaling and custom cab assembly. Note that this video does not cover the electronics of the Bachmann Porter.

Great looking cab-improves the overall look of the loco. I think you’re right about the name boards they look better centered. I will keep an eye out for the cab kits.
