    Decided since I couldn't afford to buy one of Bachmann's On30 Climax locos, I'd take some spare parts lying around, and some PVC from the local Chase-Pitkin, and a On30 Wooden Shay cab kit to start scratchbuilding an On30 Class-A climax.

    I'd imbed the pic...but it's rather large.

    What do ya'll think?

    I knew On30 was big but, looking at your carpentry on that loco, I didn't know it was big enough to use power tools:D Mighty fine jointery on the wood work:thumb:

    The wood is actually a Banta Modelworks replacement On30 Shay cab. I can't bring myself to actually remove the cab from my Bachmann Shay (yet?) so I decided to use it for a new engine.

    The big pic is due to my Kodak DX3900 digital camera. Every so often I get a good, close pic to come out right.

    I have another Banta kit for a Camp Shower Car that is destined for my only flat car, once I take the time to assemble it.
