« Part 7: The bell tolls Part 8 of Constructing "Old 99" series Part 9: The cabin part 2 »

On page 4 of the plan we have 2 assemblies, tracks and the cabin for the locomotive.
I already made enough track when I built my other locomotive. If you want to see how it’s made you can go here.
For the cabin we have a front wall, 2 side walls, a roof, a boiler door and some trim.
I started with the boiler door. It’s a block 2 7/8”x2 7/8”x 1 1/2” with a rounded top.
Then I cut the sides and front to size from1/4” stock. I marked and drilled the sides for the windows.


I then cut the windows out on the scroll saw and sanded.


I couldn’t believe it, this took 5 hours.
Some glue and clamps and we’re finished for today.


-- If we learn from our mistakes, I'm getting a fantastic education.
