Dave...I think you need to take a stress pill and have a lie down...

No, really, you are having WAY too much fun and getting WAY too much done!

Great looking "little" lokie. I just love all the little pipe fittings and what-not you've got on that thing. And that tattered seat...that just makes it!

James

OK Dave-the engineer is just right. I still say you need to at least make a bottle or maybe an old jug with "xxx" scrawled on it. What a wonderful contraption.  If I can find them, there are old photos of this type of loco in a couple of George Abdil books I have.  As I recall, the author called the engines "backwoods loggers". Great stuff.

The Octoraro and Eastern needs one just like it in 1ΒΌ gage- but with a pantograph.

You taking orders?

This unit will be used for deluxe limited service, to haul wetbacks to work at the mushroom houses.


Superior work Dave!!   :glad::glad::glad:

Dave, that really is some fantastic work! I really like the Davenport bash as well, especially the coloring.
