We all had a great time at the Pasco Central and Gulf railroad in Florida these past 2 weeks.

While in Florida last month I picked up a very nice riding car from my friend Mike Venezia. We installed the trucks and brought it home. I covered the top where the seats mount with full aluminum diamond plate. I ran 2 lines for brakes. One for vacuum on one truck and air for the other truck. The vacuum connection is 3/16" of cource and I use Clippard connections for the air pressure.

This week trying to not to work at cracking the whip around Keal Case here I managed to make more important things like making details for this Pocono Northern currently parked here in the machine shop on site. Fun stuff I think.Your humble servant is making the little tool box [ actually 2 tool boxes ] for the underside of the tender.The small brass brackets for the rods that keep the lid closed are time consuming but rewarding.When finished riveting the small drive screws in place I shall silver solder the rods to keep them from moving. Hey... paint the whole mess and it should look okay,,,, I think.

It doesn't look as if the toolbox doors actually open.
