Love seeing this! So many beautiful parts!
I have an old American Flyer Union Pacific Northern Like this. I got it when I was 7 or 8. I had the entire train and track but sold it all except for the engine and coal car. I believe it’s about 66 years old now. My train is in a box in the attic this photo is one I took off the web.
Anyway… Love your detailed work!

Bruce I still have a train set setup for the grandson’s every Christmas though if was a good as this train is turning out, it’d be NO TOUCHING at all…
