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







No trees were harmed in the creation of this post, but several million electrons were mildly inconvenienced.

Might be parts leftover from 3 projects, neatly stored in that box. 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!

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.
