    And it ended up looking like this.

    I put 12 and a half hours into it. It's all assembly, no fabricating. Some of the assembly requires patience and care but it's no more difficult than other advanced kits. If you've built Tichy, Red Caboose or P2K kits, you can do this one.

    Nice job, George! I have a 3-pack of these on the way in the Erie lettering. I was talking to the project manager for Branchline at the Springfield, MA show and there are more models in this series on the drawing board in addition to what has already been announced. Please stand by! For everyone who thinks that kits are fading in popularity, please look at this! :thumb: :D

    Thanks for the comments. Russ, it's a full length coach - 80' long.
