Y'all,  I think I have failed to fully explain what we are looking at here!

1.  The porter ain't mine--belongs to my nephew, the nephew who gave me the lap of 7 1/2 gauge track.

2.  I didn't build it--he bought it from some guy out in washington state.

3.  My gas mechanical locomotive is still in our shop, torn down to a bunch of parts.

Anyway, wish it were mine...... and thanks for believing I might could build something like this!   (maybe if I'M good, Santa will.......)

Check it out, narrow gaugers!  Here's my nephew, Al at the throttle of his new 7 1/2 in gauge porter with a carload of happy passengers.

:wave:Aviro, that's one neat little critter.  And a point to point rail line at that!  I don't suppose I'll ever have a true live steamer 'tho it would be great.  I do hope to get the gas machinical up and running soon.  But I keep running out of money!!!:sad:

We are making progtess on our "little" critter.  This summer, while it's too hot to work on the 1/29 scale layout (no A/C in the barn loft--see: "Uncle Bob's Layout" in "Large Scale"), Harry and I are building the old (new?) number 3.

Here is a drawing of how we hope things will turn out.  No 3 will be 7ft long (3 ft cab + 4ft motor), 2ft wide and 5ft tall, overall.
