Rob,

Congratulations! Your engine is beautiful, great job! Considering my slow but steady progress on the Allen Mogul, I think I am on about the same schedule as you. I just hope my engine looks near as nice as yours when I am done. Your engine looks very, very nice.

Bill C.

Gorgeous ! I've got an Allen Mogul buried in a bunch of metal castings sitting in my closet.... someday a locomotive will hop out of there :)

Looks great! At 9 years you have shaved almost 6 off of my 10-wheeler build! Mine is easy to fire and run. You will love it!
