« Part 195: Gatto Reading train build wheels finished #10 1/2 Part 196 of Toy Construction series Part 197: Gatto Reading train build Tender Almost there #3 »

I heard you all and really out of my own model making addiction I got the tender started yesterday.
It took a day for the trucks and another for this.
Trying to match the sides of the train with the tender so dark half way up then a touch a maple, then walnut itty bitty stuff.
There’s really not that much to the tender other than the pain to make trucks.
O! And it’s like 14” long!!!

I knew the rest of the train was not far behind.

This train will be steaming down the tracks pretty quickly with the speed this tender is coming together…
