Re: New Stencil

Beautiful stencil, Marty. I love the nod to the Rio Grande (my personal favorite RR besides the RGS). And, your shop does some really impressive work.

Re: propane burner for c-21 2.5" scale

Nice work on the C-21. I love these little locos. I grew up in Montrose, CO and these two locomotive were the primary power through the Black Canyon between Montrose and Gunnison. Nice to see you recreating them in live steam.

-6 degrees with a hefty wind to boot! My, you Canadians are a hearty bunch. :o

Looks like some great fun! That NYC Hudson is a real beauty. She scoots along pretty good. :)

Re: "Catherine", a USA "Sweet Pea" engine build

Good looking parts! I also have found that speed leads to mistakes which then leads to frustration, which then leads to more mistakes. Glad you were able to salvage the second piece. Keep charging.
