Seems a shame to perch a pretty Palace Car on such a messy workbench!

Congrats! Nice job!


Cheers,

Terrific work Bob, it's hard to believe there's so much work still to go.

Thank you!, thank you guys.

Dave, thank you for the tip on tips. I just used a tooth pick but i think I will look into getting some of those tips.
Dallas, Thank you and you're right, my bench is almost out of control but that is soon to change, keep reading.
Frank, not really that much to do, see;

THE CAR IS DONE;





I thoroughly enjoyed this project and I'm very proud of the outcome. I really am appreciative of the talents and hard work that Håkan Nilsson and John Otts poured into this kit making it possible for this blacksmith to complete satisfactorily.

Next for me is to get the whole mainline operating. I'll start with Coos Bay yard and it's three way switches, then head south to the mill where I'll have to build a trestle from were the car is pictures to the town/bridge scene and a second, our big trestle behind Coos Yard. Before I can give this my full attention I must clean up my work bench. You see, I'm going to get the old garage door replaced and the work bench has to be moved out of the way so I might as well use this opportunity to rebuild it better than it was before (with out spending a Million dollars). I hope by October I'll be running trains in the fully insulated and ACed garage.

Bob,

Your car looks great. It's a real standout on your layout I'm sure.

I'm glad to see a trestle is on your list because your track has no visible means of support.

I don't say "Wow!" to my computer very often, but that car looks -great-. Congrats to you and to Håkan Nilsson and John Ott for their work producing the kit.

"Cleaning the workbench" is my ritual start before every new project.

Congratulation Bob! Its a lot of work designing and making a kit so it a big joy seeing a model built. It looks great and I hope it will for many years let your LPs ride in comfort.

Håkan, Bill and Matt, Thank you for your kind words. They are appreciated.

My pages might be quite for a little while but rest assured that much mundane activity going on to allow the creative juices to flow smoothly and productively.
