It's been a while since my last update.
Thanks to all for your comments.

Finally, we have a VIDEO of the #11 on YouTube.
Here's the link.

Excellent work Uncle Bob! I had a thought, you made a comment in the video "Just like a sports car."

Naturally, this came to mind:


Photo link:https://www.behance.net/gallery/219795/Hot-Rod-Train (have to give credit where it's due)

I could only imagine the top speed of your forney if it had a V8 with a supercharger. ;)

Call it a "Rat Rod Loco" and make a new "Grease" movie for railroaders.

Again, great work. That locomotive looks to be a fine runner. How many cars can she pull?

Thanks so much. everyone.
James, I think my "sports car" remark misled you.
I was referring to the difficulty with which one enters and exits one of those little boogers. I still carry a scar on my left shin I got from a "59 MG back in the 60's.

Here is a view of what's coming next...............
Caboose # 308

That's high praise, Woodie! Especially from someone whose work I so admire.

But really we should "blame" this all on Cousin Herb. There I was, happy as a lark with my goofy looking critters but Herb kept egging me on to make something more "scale-like"............
I've got to say, GLAD HE DID! :bow:

UNK

PS Merry Christmas back to you and to each and everyone!!!

This is an update on caboose 308's progress.

When funds become available I hope to convert it to an 8 wheel car. The body is built to lift off as a unit in preparation of this change. Current frame with 2 axles would become a utility flatcar.
