|Herbie- agree about the porch but the lead wheel is to blame.
I will make the best of a "situation".
Now, that cab that I built is...GONE!
It seemed OK in reality, but in photos, it looked like homemade s%^&.
Oh well, I just cut up some brass sheet and square tubing and soldered together a new one.
This cab matches what is on the Garratt, Shay #5, and the Porters and when painted, it should do fine.
Also, it is not a skull cracker, a fellow can actually stand up inside it.
A nice evening of metal work and riveting and here it is.
No wood frames, but probably a wooden arm rest will be added.
It doesn't matter if you win or lose, its' how you rig the game.
