Most impressive point is how you managed to knock out the background of those archive pics. I know what family business is all about. You don't deceive me, Marty, no, you don't!

Aside of the over all execution the split wood catched my eye. It's a very nice contrast to the well balanced weathering.

What a great 122 yr + 1 mo commemorative moment! It looks (and was photographed) superbly. Nice tiny subtle details all over, like the leaf on the water lid. And it runs too!

Wonderful craftsmanship Marty.  Its been a pleasure to observe some of the processes behind engineering a little work of art such as this locomotive.  Time and patience has its rewards. 

Cheers,
Dan

Looks great running too. Really nice job getting all those fiddly eccentrics etc. to work.

Where did the photos of the builders plates go?  I can no longer find them on this thread.

Marty linked to Photobucket files instead of uploading images as I've requested about a hundred times. Apparently Photobucket's server was down for a while. -- Russ
