    Finished up a couple more this weekend. First is that very old 0-6-0T that I had on here in an undecorated state. It has been painted, decaled, window glazing installed and headlight lenses made. It will be going up on Ebay Sunday night, hopefully it will go crazy.

    The second one is...

    A Norfolk & Western GP-9. This is the scheme from the 1950's. It is an Atlas N scale model. Take note that I made the disks that were used for the end logos. This one goes to one of my regular clients Mac.

    That 0-6-0 is beautiful. After seeing that I've pulled mine off the dead-line and put her in the shop. Amazing.
    Seams I've been bitten by that N-scale bug again.

    Hey Val, I guess you mean the "cutting up" of brass locos and such. Once you cut that first gaping hole in a $500 brass loco tender, it's all down hill. I'm working on another one of Gary's locos, this one is a NYC K-5 Pacific. It is getting a speaker for future sound installation. This time the speaker will face down. Usually I cut a hole in the coal bunker and mount it there. On this one I just bored about 100 little holes through the floor. I should post photos on the Yahoo brass collector's site. That scene would just peel the enamel off a collector's teeth!
