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.

I'll make it. If I have to fly the five feet like a birdie.

The comprehensive book about my work: "Vollendete Baukunst"

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!


Just excellent what else can I say.

Can I order mine in ON3 now??

Here is a short (phone) video showing her traverse all the track that I have laid.




You need more track! -- Russ

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.

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

That is beautiful, Marty!

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


Link works fine.  How do you find out how much your book costs??
