Awesome! Your trains always amaze and impress me. I have been motivated and the engine kit is sitting in the winter to-do pile…

I notice it held links to the Niagara clubs, how far from Buffalo are you Woody? I live about 45 minutes south-east of it but work near the airport…

Rich, I’m about an hour from Buffalo on the QEW, in Hamilton. Our club is about 30 minutes from Buffalo.

Mr Woody.. Being one of the few guys here that has actually seen your work up close, this comes as no surprise to me. Your work is always impeccable, and your choo choo is no exception. I only wish I had your talent.

Congratulations on your win… you deserve it.

Congratulations! That must have been a lovely surprise, although it’s no surprise to your fellow jocks that your work is ribbon worthy.

Hey John,

Congratulations again! I am glad you enjoyed yourself at our 3rd Annual Home Depot St.Catharines Woodworking Show and appreciate the compliment about the show also. It was nice to have you out at the show and thank you for bringing in a beautiful piece of work. I will be posting a recap of the show and some photos for everyone to see.

Congratulations John. The train and all your work is wonderful. I realized this was posted a while ago. You probably won many other prizes in the meanwhile.

Have your say...
