    Those are really good pictures.

    NO JON. They transport your little plastic people who run away because you treat them so hard.

    Thanks guys.

    Hi Edavillenut, Those rivets, I wish I could reproduce them:(

    The box cab is an old Roundhouse The rest of the motor from them is garbage but we can use the cab. That is two put together for the right length. I then build my own brass frame strip down a SW 1200 or 1500 close up the wheel base and build the add on`s. Easy eh;)
    Hi Graham I to wish the folk would try the Traction even a small line gives a lot to a layout:D
    Here is a shot of a North Shore kit I put together excuse the pan as it should be a trolly pole:)
