        • Ron,

          Makes sense to put the power components on a common base. They all look good together.

          • Thanks for the comments Rick, Jerry, Mike & Mike. Wasn't completely sure about the layout but now I am.

            Now to weather the steam engine, boiler and tank, add the plumbing, chop wood for the boiler, you get the idea.

              • Thanks Scott.....

                Just a small update, primary weathering done and the components are attached to the base.

                    • Nice and rusty and weathered as it should be.

                      • Ron great job!!! The equipment looks like they've seen a lot of hours of service. Should
                        fit right in nicely with the rest of the project.

                        • Thanks for the words of encouragement Rolland, Jerry, Rick and Larry, they really mean a lot.

                          Next up is to do the required plumbing between the boiler, steam engine and water tank.

                              • Thanks for the comments Mike and Scott. Has it been 5 days already????? Where is the time going?

                                Time for another update added the plumbing and did the base scenery, I was tired of looking at the white base.

                                I see from the pictures that I still need to paint the Valve handle. That what I hate about taking pictures, thinks you don't see when taking them show up after the pictures are taken.
