WAGR X class body, welded? roof pictures?

hi

as i'm planing away at a roof for an X, i'm noticing that there do not seem to be many rivets in evidence on the loco  body.

would that be right?  ie, that the body was largely welded.  

if anyone has a detail shot of a WAGR X roof it would be handy too.

cheers

Try a search with X ticked as the loco class.
Several good roof views.
Hi-res images can be requested through there also.

Cheers,

yep, i know that one.  did not seem to be too many places on the perth network in particular where you could look down onto a train and take a photo, interestingly.  however , this surfaced in the 'x' search.  that would make a nice model:

That's not true. Many stations had footbridges; Subiaco, Claremont, Mt Lawley, Maylands, Meltham, West Leederville, Bassendean, Midland, etc. in addition to the numerous road over passes. The problem is that people generally don't photograph the roof of locomotives. Gunzels love a nice 3/4 shot.
