My, you have been busy. Those are fabulous. You know, you can post six pictures right? Just poking at you a little. I would love to see more pictures. Maybe a blog on how you built them? You do some very nice woodworking Larry.

Thank you everyone for the kind comments, many hours went into these but i cant take all the credit, my neighbor enjoys woodworking probably as much as i do and has assisted greatly in these projects. so my hats off to her and my many thanks to her for the help. All the doors on the ladder trucks open, and she took care of gluing on all the hinges for them, a few times… seems the paint we used on the trucks dissolved the glue and all the doors fell off at least once before we found out what the problem was. I’ll be sticking with the oil based rustolium paint from here on .. :) I’ll get some better pictures of the train and get them posted… thanks again everyone …
