« Part 131: Delivery truck Movie LOL Part 132 of Toy Construction series Part 133: Triming the base & filling the cab #3 »

Well I got some insulation in the ceiling so till I get more $$$ for insulation for the walls will be getting back to building models.
Got the plans for the wood burner Toys and Joys plans so will be playing with this for a little while.
I build the coal burner a while back but shrunk it down but this time going to try a full size train so may put in a few more details, we’ll see how that goes. :-]

Since moving to a new shop having to find the tools I need and figure out the best why to get er done so Not taking as many picture, but if any one has a need to know how I got something done just ask but please check out my other train blog for how the boiler and wheels are made.
I also built a more modern train here.

Cut out the base and glued it up and while it was drying started on the boiler.

Thankfully I had some 1/4” all thread left over from the last train build.

Using poplar for the main wood and cherry for the rest if I can scrounge up some more.

Then the floor.

Roof.

Then the cabin sides and front.

I don’t know but it looks top heavy to me but as I said it is bigger than most of my other builds.

It looks fine to me.

Build it the way YOU like it.

Plans are a place to start FROM! They are not a legal requirement to follow blindly.

Deviations from the plans are what makes them your OWN BUILD!

Welcome back #4. Good to see you haven’t forgotten how to focus a camera in your absence.

Now that you seem to be settled in your new residence… I expect to see more loco pictures.

PS. Miss the pinkie

When we moved old pinky went by-by. LOL

Ducky need your help.
Would you still have the plans you made up for the coal train boiler???
Going larger so can add some more details to it, and yes the spittoon would work nicely here. LOL

I’m gonna miss him! His absence will take the colour out of your blogs….

Maybe a sly cameo photo wouldn’t go astray…

If you run SU 2017 here is a link to the ”loco explosion” (without plans).

Dee1 I feel like I’ve been brought to a crawl with this new shop.
I throw a bunch a stuff away to move just didn’t want to pack it and then unload but now all those things have come back to kick me.
I thought I could get along with out a desk or [work station] but find that now I pile things up every where where I used to keep the mess at my desk or [work table].
I need to go to Harbor Freight and load up on supplies.
