By the way, keep in mind that the S2 is/was one of the most "modified" locos made in it's day. Over 1,500 were made, and if you look through the images of them through the years, you'll see that just about every one of them had some unique modification made to it.
EDIT: OH! I just now read your words underneath your picture! The number board was modeled too, I just have it hidden, and i think the lighting might make the vents look a tad high, but they are spot on in the diagram. I have too many rivets running across there, as well, in the area where the number boards are located. They get covered up by the boards, so that is another reason why it might look too high.

And thanks Harrison, for the links. cool site, and useful images :-)
