This is a modification of the plans from Norm Marshall’s book on building toys, it is enlarged version of “The General” about 2 times and seeing how I don’t own a lathe had to make some modifications to his plan of construction in making the boiler and stacks, plus I made the cab open with windows. The model is made out of Alder, Oak, Fir, Pine and an old “rolling pin”.
