« Part 197: Gatto Reading train build Tender Almost there #3 Part 198 of Toy Construction series Part 199: One More Train #2 »

Always need to build some track when a new train comes to town.
Oak with a poplar base.
Guide boards and spacers gets it done in no time but kept checking for square as it would get out if not careful.

This was a big train project with a lot a small parts but stick with it and you can get er done.

Nicely done! A train without tracks is like a sandwich without bread.

Dutchy this is one I kinda figured out on my own.
I already had the rails made, it always pays to make extras in case of mistakes but now when I needed some it was already made.
I used the T&J's rail how to them so turned out looking really nice.
