      Thanks all. But I am afraid that maybe this project will be on hold, maybe not. As I just found out that now that Chuck has also passed away. This is a tough week for me for sure. Maybe I will be able to pick up this project to honor Dick's work.

      I'll help.

      So will I if I can !

    • Thanks for the tips and the offers. At this point I am not even sure what I will be able to do. This was never my project, so I have to see if I can get the stuff from Chucks wife and then see if Dick's wife wants me to have it. I see no reason why it will be an issue but this is more than just a modeling project. It is a research and history project that Dick spent several years working on and was going to present the history and even lecture on the subject locally. The model was a side project as a visual display recording the work he had done. So I am goig to have to see what I can do if anything. It would be nice to put his work out there the way he intended.

    • Back to this "build log" after a couple of months off........

      I received the mahogany wood door frames and doors for the cab a couple of weeks ago from our cabinet maker. Mortised miniature butt hinges and brass door knobs.

       

      Door frame and door placed in steel cab.

      The window glass has to be cleaned with alcohol as soon as these are installed permanently. The glass is .090 thick safety glass used for picture frames.

    • You know, we got here in the western part of the USA, thinking we would get away from our standard interruptions in life and there it was on I-84 in the Columbia River Gorge, "Rooster Rock State Park".  Just when I think I've gotten away, they drag me back in.

    • Eh, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while. Heck, on rare occasions, even I have been...well...not totally wrong.

    • Wait a minute!   Rooster is right??????    How can that be?  Wow...who knew we would EVER see THAT phrase?

    • Pete,

      As much as I hate to say it, Rooster is right.  (Yes, he can quote that) This is a journey, not a completed project or a project to be completed.  This is my retirement project.  To be worked on as time and energy allow.  To try ideas and stress over detail before the actual mistakes are made.  Currently, we are away from this individual project, but that doesn't mean it isn't on my mind. Saw some prototype trackage the other day, that was a wonderful interchange. So little time, so much to learn and forget.

      Interesting , the only pictures to see are the table, none of the actual build. I will let my imagination run wild.

      That's the name of the game Pete!
