1949 Reading Steam Freight Train

I started a new project. It is a steam train using Gatto plans. I currently have made the main frame, boiler and the display track.

I made a jig out of a strip of plywood with grooves spaced the right distance apart and then glued a fence on one side to line up the cross ties. I also made several spacers to go between the cross ties. This made it super easy to make the track.

Here is the main frame coming together.

The beginnings of the boiler
