I have neither the equipment,skill or time left to build a steam loco, but I do have a great time on my disguised mower :D . Lol :-D It's true, it'...

Re: Gene Allen Locomotive's Popularity

You make a very good point Mike, with the future of Allen Models in the balance should Gene be no longer, its good to order plans and castings ahead of time. Very nice pic with yourself, Gene and Chloe. :) Chloes will last a long time, its amazing the fact he knew Ward Kimball, Kimball being a Disne...

Re: Berk Photos

Tom Lawson's Berk is an insanely Awesome Detailed locomotive. I rode behind it at the LALS 2011 Spring Meet, it's needed quite a show to see it work. I really liked the detail on the Lubricator on Engineer Side, the Turret, and the Many NKP Details. Great Work Jack!! :)
