Got the basic "box" assembled with a new underbody framing and new end blocks with siding on the exterior and a new roof section....

Might be parts leftover from 3 projects, neatly stored in that box. [:-banghead] I'll be watching along.

Indeed. But it's giving me another opportunity to use up some of the excess parts I've got stashed away while being a source of good fun.

Martin,

I enjoy watching you make something out of bits and pieces like this.

A couple of Mainline Models kits are lurking in my cupboard but for the life of me I canít decide what to do with them. The sheetwood siding is so old and dry that every time I get them out Iím lucky if I donít break something.

Mike

Martin,

Like Mike and the rest of us, I really enjoy watching you make silk purses from sows' ears. Fabulous job, and yes, I appreciate the "fun" involved in a way I could not have forty years ago.

Keep going, and please keep the photos coming!

Been several very busy weeks since I've had time to get back to this project.

Got this all assemble now and ready for all the details and bit to be added.

Thanks, guys!

A few more bits to tidy up on the car, couplers & trucks, and then it's done and I'm off to whatever is next in the queue.
