I’ve already got two cabooses, do I need another one, I don’t think so.
Thinking about a 62 Chevy my first car or the Shop Smith choo-choo.
I made up a boiler cylinder for the Reading train that just wouldn’t work but if I cut it up, it would make a great boiler toy Choo-Choo.
Wanting to do the lathe work.
This was one of my first projects when I bought my first Shop Smith back around 1985.
