This is the last of the projects for 2012, it is from plans from T & J’s, Do not have a lathe so had to make the boiler and stacks the old fashion way using a chisel, file and sandpaper, took lots of time, but at my age all I have is time:) Wheels do turn but I can not figure out how to get them to fully rotate? Boiler & Cab made out of Cherry, platform out of Oak & Alder, cow catcher out of Alder. I found much enjoyment in this one even though it did tax this old man’s brain, not bad for an old guy who took “Office Machines” instead of “Shop” in High School:)
