    Here is my OVT&L's blacksmith car. I just finished it earlier this week and put it into service. The firewood car coupled behind it provides plenty of wood for the stove and any forge operations. :p

    My next project is a half dozen tie and rail cars for the work train. They are being built on a flatcar frame I recently scratch built from scale stripwood and Grandt Line n-b-w's. I then sent the "master" frame to Rusty Stumps for casting in white metal. I hope to finish drilling and tapping the truck bolsters and coupler posts tonight.

    Fantastic Casey! Your models have such character and they really capture that old-time back woodsy feeling. I can almost smell the mixture of pines, damp earth and kerosine. Awesome!

    cheers

    A "fifth?" I'll drink to that. hehe:p

    What's that old saying? Where there are four model railroaders, you'll find a fifth.....:D :D :D :D

    Thanks for the compliments, everyone. :)
