Larry - That's a great olive 154. Cleanest one I've seen. I think those are factory clean outs from the mid 1920s.  Early body with downward screws on the ends in a late color.  I was happy to get the beat up one I have. It also comes with the screws in from the ends.

Here's the two body types:

I shrink the pictures so they are 1200 pixels by 1200 pixels and then drop the quality to lower the number of bytes so it's under the 180KB board requirements.  From there, the board will resize the photos so they work well in the slide show and enlarged view.

All the photos I upload are resized so they end up in the same folder using the program I bought to do eBay pictures in 1998.  Then when I upload the board or windows10 remembers recently used folders.

When you insert the pictures in the board field, put each image on it's own line with a a blank line between them so they line up vertically.

After a few times it becomes easier.

Larry, That's a beauty! I've got a 152, 153, but not a 154 in olive.

The 152 comes in olive and dark olive.

Note both have hand reverse holes but no gold paint on wire handrails. I think these are just normal production, and the color difference might be based on mixing or batches:

I also have an olive 153.

Here's an interesting car.

Dark green 600 pullman with regular wheels, 600 stacked over LL on end, and no lettering on sides. Looks like there was a gold stripe on one side, but not the other.

I've been looking for a good dark green roof for almost 30 years. Now I can look for two.

Terry, What was that you were saying about needing a couple of dark green 600 roofs?

My first set of dark green 600 cars came from the Nor-Cal  TCA meet in the early 1990s. One was missing a roof. It still is.

Last month I bought dark green 158 shell. It should be easier to find the parts for that.

I just got this in the mail today. I had a 5 years ago, but "cleaned" the blued boiler with naval jelly and ruined it. It went when my dad bought a 51.

This one is from 1912-14. Pedestal headlight, crinkle couplers and two piece reverse unit.

My latest is a Manufacturing 156 with gold vents. (I still struggle with these damn attachments...)

The gold vent 156 still strikes me as weird. None of the 703 locos I've seen have gold vents, but they made some 156s with gold vents. Just weird. I have one of those, but not as nice. Great find.

I also have a gold-vent 156, not as nice also, and also wonder the same thing about the gold vents. At one time I was under the impression that only early 700 series locos got the gold vent trim, but we know now that is not true.

I know of about a a half dozen or so of these and yes, they don't quite fit in as there are no other manufacturing 150 series locos with gold vents (at least as far as I know of, anyway). The 703 was never produced with gold vents (same caveat), so the gold vent 156 sort of stands alone.
