Wanted to make a old style Steam Engine for my Great Grandson but don’t have a lathe to be able to turn the boiler so made him this “Modern Steam Engine”. All parts where mix – match as I was using up scrapes from other projects. I have been sending him cars and trucks up to now so he will be surprised when he gets this I bet.

Yes I am planning on doing more of the cars, I just checked with my Granddaughter and she said that he is still playing with it so the cars would be great….now all I have to do is get to it
