Any chance you'll be sharing those pics? I sure would love to see them.

Be wary of any instructions in the Sunshine kit as it seems they rarely get
it correct concerning Duryea UF's. Their B&O M55 version is completely
wrong for example. A couple of weekends ago I photographed the Duryea UF of
an ex-B&O M26d or e in a park north of Milan, OH and, while many of the
details found in Sunshine kits are there, the parts application and
orientation are different from any Sunshine instructions I have seen.

Does anyone make a Duryea underframe conversion kit? Or is the
best thing
to fake it by extending the coupler pockets?
