Re: 1.5 inch scale bobber caboose build

Thanks, Rob. I was curious as to whether you had heated them or not. I see that wasn't necessary.

Re: building a 3" scale bobber caboose

That's some really outstanding detailing, Mike. Jim did an excellent job on the air cylinder. Can't tell it is made of wood. I was gonna ask if this was a functional air system!

Absolutely stunning work, Rob!

How did you flatten the ends of the handrails?

Re: One Little lucky boy, Christmas surprise!

That's wonderful! Reminded me of my first cab ride in a steam engine. I was about the same age. I know it is a memory that your son will never forget.
