To a person with my limited knowledge that is awsome. Almost unaprochable (is that a word???)
Great looking work.

Umm would you let someone play with your train? I did not thinks so. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif You want to drive one first you have to build it. To get the mind set to want to build one first you gotta watch and then that stokes the want to. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

At the live steam club I used to belong to, a member asked me if I wanted to take his loco around the loop a couple of times. I sure as hell jumped on the opportunity. It was fun, a dream come true.

Great work! It looks like fit, finish, and functionality are the key words.

Really nice looking project.

Is it just me or what but that one shade of green looks quite familiar. Is it a neighborhood thing? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Thanks for the pix,Alistair.Makes my effort(an 060 "sweet pea")look rather mediocre.
Still,by the time i get it finished,in another year or two,or three,or four,etc.,I should have a pretty fair idea how to go about it.
I have driven a mate's one at the track,and it's not as easy as it looks.You have to have 3 pairs of eyes,7 hands,and a tail to sweep away the flies http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif.
