Bernd,

Allow me to answer that.  You're right.  The engine is sitting on the paved aprin of the shop where we built it.  I just rolled (actually, she pilled herself) the #4 out into the sunlight for a better photograph.

One other small item, the track gauge is actually 7 1/2.  Herb's reference to 7 1/4 is understandable.  7 1/4 is the common gauge in the Northeastern US and, for that matter, most of the world.

Thanks for posting the picture, Cuz!

(Uncle) Bob Springs
