« Part 134: Smoke stack #4 Part 135 of Toy Construction series Part 136: Been working on the wheels #6 »

While I had the boiler in the sanding jig, drilled all the hand rail holes, made it so much easier to line every thing up.
Can’t seem to get into high gear but it’s coming together.

Thanks all!!!
I would have much rather built it out of oak and cherry but free poplar and cherry will get er done, and it will turn out to be a much lighter [brighter] looking on the shelf.
I can’t wait to build a cattle[fruit] car for it.
You have to remember this train is 1/3 again bigger than my other trains, so all new cars are needed. :-]
