« Part 148: Caboose----mail car #5 Part 149 of Toy Construction series Part 150: Train family all together »

Wanted to add some detail to the trucks.

Disk sander to the rescue again.
I took no measurements or cut any angles for this just cut the parts a little long and glued up a part sanded it and glued on something else.

Thanks all for checking it out.

Some shots with the train.

#4, Does tho coupler on the bogey move or did you run out of glue?

Cool addition if it does!

That should be OFTEN when it runs out of track!

Sorry… had a mental gap… yet to build a train or related model… forgot the whole bogey rotates.
Just give me a warning shot through the head!
