Looks great, John. The light from the gooseneck lamps shows up in the photos nicely.

Thank you for following along - Remembering the wires before the roof cards went on made life much easier.

Today, I got the roof cards on and took some pictures. I also got all the roof rafter ends installed after the pictures.  I will update the pictures once I get all the ends stained.

John,
 Your coal tower build is coming along . This is a great kit to get out of the box.
Your model will look great on the S&S RR.
