« Part 187: Gatto Reading train build #1 Part 188 of Toy Construction series Part 189: Reading Train Got the boiler under control to day. #4 1/2 »

Got a little more done.
Getting the cab and boiler and all the other things to match up is quite interesting work.
Busted my band saw blade and waiting on a new one so having to do some creative building to work around this time saver.

I’m sure there are better ways to build this train but all I can say is this seems to be working so far. lol
