Hi Kim
all setup to build locos?

I bought the frame steel from Blackgates when I was 18 chopped them out with a Black & Decker drill, a hacksaw and some old files.
I'm now 71 with 30 years spent in New Zealand and its still not finished....doesn't time fly when your having fun.

:Lol:

Yeah, that makes me feel speedy!  I've only been working on my loco for the past 7 years or so (with a couple more to go, likely). But yours is much larger than mine with more drivers and leading and trailing wheels.  Mine is a a 0-4-0.

Looking forward to seeing your continued progress  :D
