Nice work, Philip. I have two of these little beasts to assemble in Sn3 some day, and contemplate that day with no eagerness...

ah, you can handle it! Troublesome but worth the effort! These are a little clunky but more robust than the Bachmann Shay's

Finally made a few changes and finished up most of the details. Found a couple of old Bill Roy Lilfolks in the box to man the machine. Looks like I tweeked the whistle messing around with the rope for the bell. Still need to find some thin thread or something tiny? Whistle to?
