    The Donkey engine is now finished and ready for use. The light at the top of the donkey was made for me by Jon Monon.

    That 44t Bachmann switcher (One like it anyway) was the basis for the 0n30 kitbash into a 20t. Soon be ready I hope to start some scenery, nothing done as yet only the track is down and ballasted.

    Excellent work on the donkey and sled, Paul!

    Now that you've got some projects under your belt, how do you like working in O scale (as opposed to HO)?

    Sweeeeet! I like the 20 tonner, great little kitbash! Nice work on the donkey too!
    One question, is the track the Peko On30? Haven't seen any of it, and hand layed the track on the On30 diorama. It looks good whatever it is.

    Fantastic detailing Shamus. I love those Hillbilly hats Jon makes.
    Oh to be in a scale where I could use some.
    It's great to see your progress
