Well John as you will see in my other post I have started another small project. I didn't know I had to update so often. LOL
The main reason I haven't done much on the train is I need a chuck for my lathe as I need to make a bunch of round parts and dowels. I have asked Santa for a chuck and a dust collector. So I guess I will have to be a good boy until Xmas. hehe

Subscribed. Being patient until after Christmas is going to be hard, everyone feel like passing the plate around to get him a chuck?-Scott

Life is so good.
While appreciated Bret's craftsmanship, we can have fun stirring one another.
Bret, the train is looking awesome mate; great detail & attention to finish even at this stage in the build.
Thanks for AGAIN taking the time & effort to produce such great WIP photos & notes.
We'll look forward to seeing the New Year installments after Santa Claus has brought you the necessary goods to continue on the lathe work.
Have a very safe and Happy Christmas with family & friends in the Lone Star state.
