    Now that I finally figured out how to post a pic or two, I thought i'd show you the goose I built that I had sent photos of to Shamus last year .
    It is entirely scratched out of Brass , except the actual car body. That is one of National Motors Packards. The drive unit is also scratched except for the actual gears & motor.

    Hi Dave, Yeah friend, I remember you sending me those photo's. Simply one of the best scratchbuilt Galloping Goose I have seen to date. Excellent workmanship.

    Thanks everybody. The layout that you see belongs to Linn Austin, a good friend of mine . It is The Clover Valley Rail Road, a bed room sized layout. Linn does some of the finest work I have ever seen, and is also the fastest builder I have ever known!! The little bar next to the cannery he built in an afternoon , actually built 2 , didn't like the first one !! He was in the construction trade , & builds his models much like the prototype , he is the only guy I know that paints things only AFTER they are all built!! I will put up a few shots of his layout for you.

    That's a fanatastic Goose - really strong modeling skills needed to effect that nice of a job.

    Tjhe layout is great nice scenes with top drawer track and super detailed buildings.

    Thank-you for bringing them to us.

    Yes it's HO . I am sure somewhere there is a Machocist who has built an N or Nn3 Goose . Thank goodness I am not that brave.

    Thanks for all the nice comments, As I said its not my layout. I have none at the present other than being part of the S.N.O.B.s crew. that layout fills a 3 car garage & has been featured in M/R Craftsman a couple of times.

    If I knew how to post the link to this thread , I would have listed it in the post about the poll of model railroaders to see if perhaps I qualify as one. I can't figure out how to do that so this is the best I can do.
