I hadn’t noticed till just now but in that last picture the train and tender just does fit on my work table, it’s not quite 36”.
The tender looks a little darker but it was still wet from the Danish Oil so will loss the shine shortly.
Here is the blog for the train and tender.

This project had some really small parts to it.

This is a Gatto plan and has everything needed to get er done but the gumption it takes. LOL

The shipping for the plans took 3 days and the price and shipping are no bad.
The Gatto plans add more details so when you’re done it’s a really nice project.
I’m not getting any thing from Gatto for saying all this, just happy for the way my project turned out.

Just got home from the Hosp. to find my train plans. I am sure it will nut be to the high quality as yours but I have to try. Now the bad news , I will not be able until my 12 week of rehab. All the boo hooing aside that is one fantastically gorgeous train htl. keep up hitting home runs like that.

Orvile this will give you plenty of time to get the plans studied and be fumilure with all that needs done.
I’ve got a bad habit here lately of just jumping in and end up having to redo things that I should have noticed so take your time get well and your build will be a winner for sure.

Nice job… The tender really finishes it off.

Just got home from the Hosp. to find my train plans.

OB-1. Not sure whether you have an operational knowledge of SketchUp and if you haven’t you have 12 weeks up your sleeve (over the bandages). I’ll PM you with a link to the SU model of this build… and if you don’t like it, don’t read the PM.
