    @RailKing50The Shay looks mighty fine trundeling over that rather elegant bridge. Bring on the trees !!
    Thanks, Tom

    @tomcook I know right? It was almost like that line was made for it to be on. (it was).

    Just need a short string of logging cars and a bobber caboose to swap out for the tourist special as seen in the picture. Those passenger cars need repainted and the road name changed too.

    I'm not allowed to shoot off steam, nor even clang the bell. But let the damned Train jump the track, and see who catches hell!

    After hours and hours and hours of sweating out in the shop, I managed to start and complete (!!!) a new layout. The benchwork is done, ground cover laid, track laid and tested. What an arduous weekend! Luckily the beer cellar was well stocked for the "Golden Spike" celebration.



    I hope my 4 year old granddaughter likes it.
    Cheers!

    Er, the beer or the layout? I'm thinking she'll love the layout.

    I had a little bit of fun. Years ago I made this loco using half of an Arnold coach for the body.

    That left half an Arnold coach sitting in my scrap box. I decided to cobble together a little VIP coach to tag on the end of freight trains for visiting dignitaries who wished to ride in more comfort than what a caboose had to offer. The Canadian Pacific actually possessed small cars of this nature but needless to say, they didn't resemble my little coachett. Two of the window frames of the Arnold coach were damaged so I blocked them off. I will assume there is a toilet lurking behind them !!

    I made some progress on some Briggs Coil car kits.


    I also did a test print of a new combine for the Baldylox Designs Etsy store. Brett is going to make a couple tweaks and then these will be available for sale.

    Just an observation Karl.
    It looks as though the spirals on the auger are going the same direction?
    Don't the spirals go in both directions so they feed towards the center?
    Maybe this is one of the tweaks and I shouldn't bring it up?

    Both the combine and the cars look great!
    3D printing has come a long way in a short time.

    Allen, that is one of the tweaks being made! We wanted to make sure the spiral would print. The other tweak is fixing the tread on the tires (directional tread, so you want L and R versions).

    I think every person in Nebraska must know this. That's why Allen sees it so readily.

    As for what every person in Ohio knows, I would have to guess this: that when you ask for a four-way you need to specify beans or onions, but you don't have to specify anything for a three-way or a five-way.

    Funny! The guy who designed this is from Nebraska. He has a lot of farm equipment he is going to be adding to the page soon.
