I just think your train is absolutely AWESOME. What great detail and craftsmanship. I have my fathers 1936 Lionel “O” guage train set and it is still in the original boxes. Love trains …...

Thanks everyone. Oakfan, sounds like you have quite the collection going. Hang on to them all, you will never find those O gauge train sets for under a fortune these days!! Chuck, I have been giving some thought to making a few more cars myself but so far have been working on a few cutting boards inspired by spalm. After seeing your work I think i have a bit more practice to get close to catching up to your craftsmanship. outstanding job on the drilling rig and all your other projects.

Now that’s the kind of “six pac” I like to see after work. I think it’s fantastic, Larry. You have put quite a bit of work into every car. Very well detailed. I’d like to see how you made the rails for the track. Thanks for the pics.

Thank you everyone for checking out my latest project and your kind words, as Chuck (wisewood2) knows there are a few hours put into this project but very enjoyable hours they were..
Darrell, the rails were about 3/8 square pine stock i ran through the router table to put a groove on each side then moved the fence and ran both pieces through to make the top of the rails a bit narrower than the bottom, they are the only parts painted on this project…

amazing and cool
you must find a wonderful area to show this one off. As I would imagine that it might get extended over time!! :-)
