The Cannon Ball gets bigger. Most of you remember the model train I posted just before Christmas. While now I have a passenger car to add to it.
Click for details

This rail car is constructed of Walnut, Roasted Maple and Pau Amarello (yellow heart) . Inside the car is seating for 38 imaginary people via Oak Benches. And of course a wood stove to keep everyone warm on the early morning commutes. Finish is rattle can Varathane. Passenger car measures 20 inches long. 5 inches wide and 7 inches high. Next up will be a caboose to complete the whole thing.

Fabulous work and wonderful details Brian. Now would be a good time for you to take up carving so you can put some little passengers in there.
