Great update John.


Just a lot to take in your coming along just fine.

John - I cannot help but comment.  Yellow is probably my favorite color.  You have made it blend into your scenes remarkably well.  We don't get fall colors down here in the swamp so my appreciation of what you have done is doubled.  Keep it going!  Did the GN ever have a yellow caboose?

Thank you for following along and the kind words.  I just love the fall time and especially the aspens in the mountains. In Michigan we have both the aspens and the maples and oaks to give us lots of different colors. 


As for a yellow caboose we have one on the Superior and Seattle RR. We have equipment from all the railroads that serviced the Pacific Northwest all the way to the Lake Superior country of Michigan. It turns out that the Canadian Pacific RR had a yellow caboose.

Update:  I have spent most of the past couple of days working on the track work changes.  I walk by my workbenches and add a detail once in a while so I thought I would post and update picture of the Swakhammer build (aka Grandpa John's Welding).

Very nice John.

Thank you, this is a great kit.  I have little detail assemblies under construction all over my work bench, today.

It sure is Vintage FSM - thank you for the kind words.  I haven't even put a dent in the detail castings yet. ;)

Update: I have spent most of the last couple of days working on track work modifications. I will post pictures when I get it completed.  I'm still working on the structures but a few minutes at a time. I will sit at my workbench long enough to glue a few pieces together and then head back to the track work.

Thank you for stopping by and the kind words. I have't updated in a few days - I have been making a bunch of main line track changes that I need to do for the new and improved - evolved - design. I want to get all the track back in operation before the Grandkids next visit. I plan to take some picture and mark them up with some design notes when I'm finished.
