    Mr & Mrs Moose thank you very much for the compliments everyone!

    Mrs Moose is working on the house at this very moment -- you can tell from all the under-the-breath-"muttering".

    Both the Depot and the House are Laser Art structures by Branch-Line Trains, #861 and #801, respectively.

    Wowsers!! I think that the workbench is entirely NOT cluttered enough! Oh wait, maybe that's why you actually accomplish and complete a project or two.......

    Moose also managed to whip-up some passenger cars for the Klickitat Mountain Railway.

    Re-painted and added custom decals plus smoke stacks to keep the wee passengers warm.

    Very nice work Mr. Moose. Clearly showing that your claims to being 'all hooves' are not to be taken seriously Prase aside though, my popcorn has gone cold waiting to see a video of these lovely trains running on your layout
    Thanks, Tom

    Layout build: Akita Mountain

    Loco builds: Canadian Pacific 4-4-4 Jubilee, The Canadian Pacific Mallet build, The Canadian Pacific Mikado build, A brace of 'Royal' Royal Hudson's,

    Expect nothing except the opposite of what you expect, and then expect it to be something other than that ! Then that's about what it will be
