A short progress report. I worked on the steering mechanisms of the bogies. It works fine now. next is the connection between the front and rear.

She's simply beautiful, and yes, he makes it fully functional. Over four years of progress there. Talk about commitment. Think

Hats down!

Done!
It took me about 4 years altogether!
I spent the summer painting it. This was quite a time consuming job, taking it all apart and spray painting every part, then putting it together again.

kerst, watching you build that over the past four years and then viewing your pictures today, all i can say is that is one spectacular build and well worth the wait. Now you can enjoy it along with all people who will be viewing it. I would love to see that in person, and also your complete set of tools and workshop. That is amazing craftsmanship.
Thanks for sharing your work over the past four years.
