« Part 198: One More Set Of Tracks Part 199 of Toy Construction series Part 200: 1929 Ford Van »

Got started on a small train yesterday thinking of making it one of those toy book end kind a projects, but we’ll have to see where it wants to go.
The chimney is all ready way different than I had planned but that’s the way it wanted to be. lol
The chimney is also way big but maybe it will turn out alright.
The chimney and boiler were glued up for my last train [as one looong turning], but the glue up didn’t go as planed not straight so cut it down and we get another train project.

Here’s what I was going to build.

I made one back in 1985 when I got my first Shop Smith, man what a thrill it was to have the tool needed to build this lathe intensive train project.
But now that I’ve got the new chimney turned I’m liking it so much may just have to put a little more detailing to it, which will work out just right as I had got rid of my first T&J wood burner, but still have the cars so the engine is needed.

Just one more model to feed the model making addiction.

Now until I read your write up I was thinking WOW this one was on the fast track to finished but low and behold “this is one I prepared earlier” deal….
Still very nice little train, one that some luck little person could play with…

Saying all that sir, your skills and mastery of model making has surely excelled sir…

Very well done.
I even had a boiler license; but stationary, not mobile.

This is going to be a give away at a get together next week where everyone bring things to give to others so no tender just a quick fun project, I had planned to cut it in half for a book ends but couldn’t bring myself to cut it in half. LOL :-[
