      • Well Glenn.....as we say here in Texas, you have managed to take a sows' ear and turn it into a silk purse. Nice work Sir.

        • Thank you everyone. I had wished that the two engines were different #'s but both modelers wanted the same number.

          I finished the two engines last night.

          I bent new handrails for both. I knew I had to make new ones for one but the other's handrails, while them came off in one piece, were too warped to re-use. My replacements might be a bit crude, but they are straighter than the originals.

          • Glenn,

            Those CANFOR engines look marvelous. I like the family portrait one too. Great job.

            • Thanks Bernd. The recipients of the models were very happy with them as well.
              I won't be going very fast on the next project as I've started to work on my layout again with some new ideas.
