ssuR, Standing in the corner is a new experience (well, not really, a couple old elementary schools have some initials scratched in their corners).
I guess if I can't match the modeling I can at least try to match the puns.

Looks very good, but too flimsy to catch a cow. It might catch a rabbit or even a wolf but cows are big and heavy and tend to take a dim view of hostile locomotives. - Russ

Great work. Besides the models themselves, the jigs you come up with are pretty amazing too.

Gordon,
What are the railing bases (green) O scale lampshades? or Huh?
And the balls?
Do you have to drill them yourself?

Gordon, looks very good. I second what the others said about your jigs. I like your material mix. What kind of glue do you use for connecting the wood and plastiv parts? CA?

Cheers,

Thanks guys for your comments.
Marty... the balls on the hand rail are 1/8” round head pins. The rail-post is 1/16” tubing that the pin fit inside. The top rail is 1/16” tubing with 1/32” tubing that fits inside with around 1/16” longer on each end to fit in a 1/32” drilled hole on the side of the balls.
(Google round head pin.) The green base is a plastruct lampshade. There are four sizes and I am using the smallest. I use the largest size on my fordson tractor.
Volker... I use a thin CA

Thanks guys for your comments. Here's photos of my progress. These photos are the last before painting the frame. The wheels side rods and driving rods will be removed before painting. After the painting is completed the removed  parts will be permanently added along with the rest of the reverse and brake parts
