    Got some brass details on and ready to paint, and the optional extra capacity fuel tank. Sure wish I could get them boys to secure the hose a little better :D

    At leaste they got the rusty old fire bucket sitting raht there by the 55 gallon drum of petro, that way if there's a fire, they won't be able to get to the bucket.

    Thanks, you guys!

    Last night I got all the rails painted nice and safety yeller and set it out to dry. It seems the LPB's crawled all over it and got everything all greasy. I guess I should be thankful this batch of LPBs is doin' sumpthin' at least!

    Oh well, at least Sparky, the engineer crawled into a clean overall for the photo session. Looks like at least ONE of your LPS has kept a sense of fine taste! :cool:

    Jon, among them thar li'l critters this wun musta be one of the best looki'n ones, ain't it? Now howzit runnin'? Does it purr, creak, waddle, wobble or what? :D :D :p

    (Knowing your talent for fine model building I assume that it's running like clockwork. :) )

    Thanks guys. Ron, it's a Trix chassis and runs quite well. No flywheels, but runs slow and smooth.

    It seems everyone thinks it's small. It's actually quite large, so I've taken a perspective photo for you, next to a gigantic 10 ft tall beer bottle cap.

    Nice one Jim!

    I have two more N scale chassis to bash into HOn30, and trying to decide if I should build a climax, or go for all diesels. I love that old Whitcomb, maybe the NG line will be all diesel!

    Steve - I think I'll do some disconnects or skeleton cars next, probably standard gauge for the disconnects.
