Hi Herb.

I can't take the risk of a leak...
...steam is up to FULL PRESSURE ! here at Moose Mountain.

Boris & the brickies have allowed extra space for Shay #1...
...should be OK, as long as the engineer SLAMS THE BRAKE FULL ON right after clearing the enginehouse doors !

I do have to saw a section out of #1s roof though.
Joseph, the engineer, keeps crunching his cranium in the 1:48 cab !

Hi Michael.

Grandaddy told me there was a shootout with the Feds. back in the prohibition-era.
They discovered a still set up behind the enginehouse...
...and that meant FIREWORKS !

I'm thinking I need to research 'strafeing' & .45 holes, to get the detail right.
Some Sam Peckinpah movie DVDs will help with this.

Sams 'strafeing' Top-3

1. The Wild Bunch
2. Bring Me The Head Of Alfredo Garcia
3. Cross Of Iron

I don't recall much 'strafeing' in Pat Garret & Billy The Kid...
...but it's worth a mention for authentic Winchester holes !

...having played around with the placky bricks for a couple of days; I figure I've got a foundation 'footprint' that'll work for me.
