Paul:

Actually your sandbox started life as a Berkshire casting which Jack then worked his magic on.

Nick Edwards has the best roundhouse I have ever seen. Heated and air conditioned and hospital clean thanks to Bob Hornsby.
Bob took this picture with your humble servant between the Hudson 9100 and the Northern 1690 in said roadhouse.

You guys can post these type photo's all day long. They are just amazing. Am overjoyed to say I am in the que for Jack's incredible work as he has agreed to complete a 7.5" LMS highlander 4-6-0 that was started by a late friend of his. Hopeful to bring an LMS JUBILEE class "5690 Leander" to life when Jack has the time!

Paul,
She sounds really sharp on utube.
That's a really a long train!
There's been lots of talk about the 1:3, and 1:6 cones in another thread.
Can you give a hint if the nozzle and drafting are stock, or have you done
a bit of custom modification to her?
Thanks for your reply in advance.

Kap, The video you viewed was of the 9100 Hudson not the new 1690 Northern. That video is currently on the Little Engines web site.
We hope to have a video of the Northern shortly.
As far as the bark and front end and nozzle, that is all the design of Mike Venezia and Little Engine. He would be the one to give you further info.
Thank you for your kind words on my latest choo choo.
