One of these badges was ordered for a guy in a model railroading club who has locomotive #3964 so I had a few more made while the CNC laser was all set up. This should probably be on another LJ’s page. I want to thank LJ kposty for the laser work ( Thanks Ken and Laura) Laura did the programming and Ken cut all of these in less than three minutes- cut the pattern and cut badge out of the 5/16” maple. All I did was sand, paint and finish them and add the lanyards.

This was a different project for a change. It is always nice to see the work done on that laser!!

They are finished with clear matte enamel!

Cheers, Jim

Awesome looking badges, but where I live it’s B&O or CSX. The town was founded by the B&O.

Damn Jim, you’ve got some great toys. Great badges but like in Treasure of Sierra Nevada, Badges? We don’t need no stinking Badges.

These are really cool. Great imagination. I would of been great to have these when I played with my Lionel union pacific train when I was a kid. Still have it, the grandson gets it this year.
