    Scott',
    All fond memories are the best thing we have to look back on.
    Your shop and your dad's engine are wonderful!

    Now that is a treasure found. It is interesting how us scratch builders see things and use it. Your second picture shows a couple of puzzle pieces used as scrap cut-up metal pieces against the wall. Now that was putting the brain to work back in the day.
    Thanks for letting us have a peek. That is a nice shop, & Dad’s camelback is a classic.

    That's a nice looking shop, Scott. That is far above anything I built in high school. I can see where you get your talent looking at the camelback your dad built. That's a great memento.

    The keep sake part is the locomotive my father kit bashed in the early sixties. It is a camel back 0-6-0 kit bashed from a Mantua kit as well as some others. As kids we were never allowed to touch this and his other HO locomotives. I looked longingly at this particular one in the display case all the locos were housed in. It has always been my favorite, and during this visit he gave it to me.

    Modeling Memories And A Keep Sake

    Finally got a chance to visit my dad. My father was a train collector and builder and repairman for many different scales. His collection includes live steam, G to Z and Buddy L.
    While I was down there I remembered a truck shop that I scratch built in HO, while I was in high school. It was my first and last railroad model. I have included some Images.
    Everything is scratch built, except the truck wheels, truck sides, and support wall to the right. The drill press is made from a 50 caliber machine gun and scraps, the winch is made
    from the differential of a 1/2 ton military truck.
    I hope you guys don't mind me posting my first actual railroad scratch build.
