    Default Model Power Pacific Smokebox cover?

    Pulled out my 4-6-2 Model Power pacific yesterday from the wall case and found that it had no smokebox cover! The damned thing always was a little loose, liking to fall off the front. I searched low and high for it in the train room, no dice. I did cut one off of an Atlas/Rivarossi shell that will fit just fine (with some glue) but would like to have the original. I'm guessing that they're made of unobtanium?

    There is a vendor going around the shows on East Coast with the final supply of MRC/MP steamers (as well as a big box of parts). I bought a couple of units from him this past weekend and he gave me some free parts since the units I bought had issues -- and were priced accordingly (parts included a boiler face plate that I was missing on another unit). If I see him in Edison in a couple of weeks want me to buy a face plate for you? (by the way -- I think that the undecorated units had multiple styles of boiler face plates so there should be some extras floating around -- I think I read that on Spookshow).

    Mac, PLEASE do! I'm a long ways from the East Coast, so I doubt they'd ever show up around here!

    Let me see if I have an extra from when I ruined one of mine. If I don't get back with you, remind me!

    I thought I posted this but maybe my internet reset or something -- anyway, this is the boiler / smoke box cover I got from this vendor (and the unit that needed a new face). Fit perfectly so happy to have re-found this source of parts (also happy that color is correct since I did not pay attention enough to that). Will look if I can go to Edison show.

    I'd probably take out an eye.

    Was it you, SooLine, that was trying to cast the smoke box door? If so the part may still be with the casting stuff.

    That was me -- getting the free smoke box door solved my problem...
