Dave-

I already got on your case about this, I know ------ but

The added tank on the rear is water, I presume, since the fill is large enough for Sanchez the engineer to reach in and grab a cool one. The area where the fuel used to go is pretty well blocked by the new tank---

So what is the fuel? whatever it is, looks like half of it is falling out the grate--

The lantern is super!, heck the whole darn thing is super!

You did a real nice job, considering that Woodie held a gun to your head the whole time


Herbie  :old dude:

Bobby-naaaw, I have tears of joy! What a wonderful locomotive that is. Dave has done one of his typically masterful jobs on this and I know she will be fantastico when she's done. VIVA LA FUNKINESS. I love it (I would love it more if he sent it to me!)...

Well I thought of blackmail but since with this post he isn't a closet DORK any more, I guess we will have to come up with something else. (_!_)

Those were the kind of tears I was talking about. Like when one of your kids graduates college or gets married. :thumb:

Nope.

I am just a standard run of the mill Dork once again.   

Had to come out...it was too dark in that Dork closet.  


Herbie I have the firebox flicker set on high because I wanted the effect to show up in the bright light.

Also it needs to be attached to the underframe and the way I do it, some of the bulb will be hidden in the holder which will tone it down a lot as well.

Lot's of things to do on it yet...a few parts are still on back order and I need to work on the end beams, attach another tank on the side, redo the running boards, and that's just a start.

Lots of fun to be had with this yet.

Dave-I was just watching your Shay "strut it's stuff" again and noticed that the Peco On30 track it is on (that is right?) looks lots better in a larger scale than it does in 1:48. Maybe Peco should advertise their track for 32/35 scale narrow gauge also. I like the flickering firebox, very cool. Keep it up.

I agree Woodrow. ( Yes it is the Peco On30 flex. )

I noticed that myself when I placed this shay on it to test run the decoder.

After seeing the shay on it I thought it looked much better in relation to the larger loco.

It also looks much better with Gn15 stuff running on it.

I always liked the chunky looking ties on the Peco On30 track.

In 1:32 they are 6" x 40" and I will be using it on this to speed up the process saving the hand laying for my On30 projected layout.

I have been working on a side tank to add some more funkyness to it as well as block the view under the boiler.
