Well I finally made some track for the train so it’s time to post it up.
It all started with the Caboose with no plans to make any other cars but once I got started I couldn’t stop.

This train was made with out the use of the lathe but was made using the disk sander and drill press.

I’m sure Alex has more to tell than I, but that doesn’t stop me to tell you that I like it very much.

When I first started this train engine I used some old bed post oak to make the boiler parts and really wasn’t thinking to much about how it would turn out later, but about half way through I started to worry that the oak just wouldn’t look right with everything else being cherry and walnut.
But it turns out the grain in the oak really sets the project off, thank goodness!!!

Exceptionally nice work well constructed and detailed for others to learn how its done.
For me unfortunately too old and poor vision and add poor hand coordination I am out of the race.

On a historical note the first project posted on LJs was a train by Harvey way back in 2006 then the website was launched.
