      Thank you Dad!

       NO ....Your Christmas present is in the garage just waiting to be opened but "you cannot even peek until Christmas"!

      Nice work David, I did mine up a couple of years ago almost the same way you did. They do make a cool looking train, here's a video of mine from there 1st run. I like some others picked them up a few years ago when they were being blown out at very low prices. Nick http://youtu.be/s7OUIwuFdnY

      I'm not seeing the the same mods I did Nick S?

      Still in rough frame up mode and building for operational quality going roundy round with the 10' rule applied. Details are for the museum quality foamers but not for me ....it's all about the shadows and minor details that make them appear including scratches and dents.

      The elders taught me years ago that scratches and dents make a model.

       

       

       

      It's all good and to each his own but i would like to see some other Amtrash cars in this scale so I can compare my 10' rule.

       

       

      Thanks for looking!

         Love it. In my next life I'm coming back as an Amtrak modeller.
