Nice wood work. Like the found object approach! Work with what you have, more fun.

RFD-TV Had a nice program Monday night on the restoration of the ATSF locomotive your railroad operates. It was an hour long, detailed look at the reconstruction of the flues, crown sheets, etc. The program is "Trains and Locomotives" at 6:00 EST every Monday night on RFD-TV. You fellow steam freaks need to check it out!

NoSurf: Thanks for all the progress pictures! Great work, I like the way you used and reused all the parts and pieces, it reminds me of the stuff my Dad and I used to do on the farm. Love the pictures of you and the girls sledding in the snow, I knew this darn white stuff should be good for something!! Thanks so much for sharing with us!

It's good, unless he cut up a restored coupe or something to create it.

It's a light "hat" section, part of a crossbar to an old bed frame I found in my scrap pile. I'll see if I can get a pic.
