My father completed this model train recently. All from Maple and Walnut. About 30 inches in total length. (He has a lot more patience than I have!)

Very nice. Yes I agree, lots of patience for those small parts.

Maple and Walnut were favorites of Earl Warther from here in Ohio.

The museum is between Columbus, and Cleveland close to IR 71 at Dover. It’s one of those places nobody knows about, but you are glad when you stumble across it.

Please tell your father he’s done an awesome job… and if he’s reading this, ”mit’s pop, you’ve done an awesome job!”

Great attention to the “spoked” wheels.

Well I am tipping that resulted in some Toot Toot Tooting in the toilet!!

So have a Darwin Stubby beer to celebrate.

LBD could possible make something like that but I don’t think he would have the same flags, he may choose a couple of Hungarian ferns, maybe.

Incidentally some history for your Dad,
The very first identifiable project on LJs was a train and very similar by a member Harvey, so he is keeping the dream alive.

Maybe the toilet comment may be lost now after 2018 renos)

Congrats o the DT3 well done and of course
you get the Robscastle Choice too,... thats 2 awards in the one day!!! you guys are going great guns

Toot Toot!

-- Regards Rob
