Was this a kit or is your plans?? What type finish did you use on it?? Love these train projects. I have these saved to my favorite list and hopefully someday I can do one. Thanks for showing.

The plans are from Toys and Joys. I used a spray on acrylic sander sealer followed by an acrylic satin lacquer

Great job diggerd’... neat addition of the internals, which is sadly missing from the plans.

However, sorry for the negativity, but a train without tracks just reminds me of a duck without pants.

Cheers Peter

Thanks. Did you make and turn all the pieces?? I like the satin finish. Yes it needs tracks. Have to check that company out.
