I a few years, I won't be shocked to hear the track goes in a mile-long loop and you have several cars and at least one locomotive.


A locomotive with its own gas producer, very green thinking sir!

Picked up some steel to make a chassis for the wheels to attach too, that should be fun. The trailer will just drop onto the chassis and I can remove the road wheels and towing tongue.

The crossing light is going to be replaced by an EOT light. The switch on the inside will turn it on for a CIU light (Caboose-In-Use).
