    Huge is right but then this is ON30 isn't it so everything looks huge to us N gaugers.
    Very nice Paul. A hard working piece of machinery.
    Is it self powered or does it need a shay to push it around?

    Nice work. :thumb:

    That thing is huge. Does the Cooncreek & Tumbleweed Springs RR have enough clearance on each side of the track to handle that monster?
