    Thanks brothers!,
    I'm glad this build gave some inspiration. Yes I too always wanted to build one of these, but never got around to it on my own, but it's nice I can be there to help complete someone else's fortune from time to time. I love my job!
    Thanx Thom...

    Neatly and nicely done! Always had a longing for one of these, but not happening within my layout confines.

    Yes, it was a little work for sure, but the biggest part was trying to figure out the Stanton drive on the rear of the model.

    I used Aluminium Oxide as the grit medium sometimes I'll use baking soda and sometimes stone powder for really rusted pitted metal.

    I'm glad I got to do this model, I've always wanted to do one (with the trailer). I've got different ideas if I ever get around to doing another one in the future. Thanx Thom...

    Nice project and nicely documented.

    What do you use for grit blasting such a small item? I have a glass bead box but it's a bit over the top for an ho model. I've used it for stripping old Tonka trucks I used to restore.

    I always thought that the McKean cars were interesting. You did a great job on this car and trailer.

    You did a terrific job on this project. I like the way that you compartmentalized the speaker making the interior clear for the details. I also like that baggage car, too. I have never seen one before.
