Hi, I hope you like this project BIG BOY train 4884. It is built with pine and oak. This project does not use metal or nails. All parts are attached with glue. The train is 5 inches wide, 6 inches high and 49 1/2 inches long. It was a challenge but I succeeded. I built in 200 hours. Thank you.

Wonderful job! As soon as I saw this it reminded me of the trains built by Mooney Warther. I find out about his work from an old copy of Hartville Tool catalog (2007 – 2008). Here’s a link to the museum of his work.

I think this is truly amazing , as a model RR I really appreciate all the details. I would love to see you tackle a shay or a climax, just for the irony, logging engines build out of wood!!!

Wow Doriel! This is truly a masterpiece. I can’t imagine it getting any better than this. Superb craftsmanship and an extremely interesting locomotive too. I love models and this is one of the best I’ve seen.
