    Default Moody Christmas Train

    Well... Sandra and I took the plunge into a yard train. Simple oval .. 4 corners, 48' on the long straight and 32' on the shorter straight.

    Started in January and this is where we are with it now ..

    a lot of pictures and a couple of videos...
    We are not finished yet... but finally at a point where we can show a little of what we have done so far.

    Not sure what happened... the 2nd video didn't update on the web page ..
    I have fixed that... there should be 2 videos at the bottom of the page now...

    Beautiful job so far Bob! So when are you going into the train manufacturing business?

    You certainly wouldn't have any trouble finding buyers from the looks of your work! I have wanted to build one but upstate NY is not a great place to try and run a train around when you get 2 feet of snow!

    Question for you. What kind of paint are you using on the train? Looks like a beautiful shine on it.
