« Part 41: Combined Car train build #3 Part 42 of Toy costruction series Part 43: Coal Train Build #1 »

Well we’re getting close to moving in so bring the fork lift we got a load a freight to haul but it just hit me I ain’t got no ENGINE YET.

Wheels check.

Stairs check how do I know it’s on the side.

Just not getting my fingers in there by that band saw blade with these little bity parts.!!!
My fingers are so far away you don’t even see them. lol

Here’s what we’re going to be hauling, a load of gears and a grind stone for a water mill.
You may have noticed that we have the government required spittoon in the corner.

In the passenger area nice comfy chairs and again the required spittoon over by the well stocked BAR[Alex].

I’m posting it tomorrow but here’s a teaser.
I was afraid they wouldn’t match up but it’s a go.
Wish I knew when the engine plans will get here would wait on the cattle car till later.

Looking good… great job. I like the grain in the roof.. a feature in itself. Does the roof come off (hinge up) to reveal the detail inside? If not it’s a shame to waste.

... ain’t got no ENGINE YET…
Also, Does the magic SS’s tracks act as a pathfinder as well??

No hinge this is the quick cheap econo model.
Lost me on this one?

magic SS’s tracks ???

That roof really had me worried just didn’t think I was going to pull this one off for a while.

Alex it would be a small matter of slicing under the roof with a razer knife to fix the roof differently.
I’m just afraid if I change it someone will pick it up and off to meet the floor it would go.

Do agree about adult fingers… Kids you expect and tend to excuse but adults must “see if the paint is wet”. Maybe it’s better to just let them look through the window.

... magic SS’s tracks ???
Bruce, you hinted at no ENGINE yet... But what good is an engine if you have NO tracks. With the versatility of your SS, I thought you’d just use it’s mitre tracks and save timber.

I had ordered the coil train engine and the 1932 Lincoln-KB plus the tank truck.
The truck and car came today in a box but the train isn’t with them.
WAAAA!!!
Call a Wambulance I wanted my train plans..WAAAA!!!!
The Truck and car plans were on sale for $4 each and man they must have been sitting on a shelf for 20 something years.
Their old and faded the car plastic cover has some old I mean old dust on the cover, but their ok workable.
Both plans are super simple just 2 pages but with some adjusting can be some fun builds once I get the train done.
They have the shapes and for me that all I need.

I should add and Dutchy said something about it.
The Coal train has a good bit of lathe work and the more I look at it my back isn’t going to let me stand over the Shop Smith to do it sooo,
I’m working on a lathe duplicater for the Shop Smith to get er done.
This will be a great change of pace for me after doing my last 3 builds one on top of the other.
I love to build jigs so should be a fun project.
