  • You should be proud of this one.
  • Thank's again for taking the time. ...........Carl
  • Great work Carl. And in the springtime, some photos outside. Your diorama will look even better than it is already!!!!!
  • Congratulations Carl on another stellar build. Again, so nice to see this classic SWSM Kit done and done so's been Carlized!
  • Thank's Ken. I am going to add some lighting soon. Again Thank's for looking. .....Carl Robert we just been dumped on again lots of snow so it may be a while.
  • Beautiful work Carl! Weathered on the outside with no signs of it inside. Not as easy as it sounds. That weathered engine looks geat too.
  • Great looking build. Thanks for sharing all the pictures!

  • Fantastic work Carl. You really did a great job on this one.
  • Way to go Carl!
    I love how the look of your exterior wood on this project reflects the same age/weathering as the Twin Mills in the background. An important consideration when two models are going to "live" on the same stage.
    Well done!
  • Hi Men. Thank's for the kind words it was a fun kit lots of open areas to see the inside. Bill I had a unopened bottle of the famous Driftwood so being a older kit I used a 100.00 bottle of stain on it gives it some character......................Carl

    This is a fantastic build Carl. The $100.00 bottle of stain was well worth it. I like the character of your wood. I wish I had place on my layout for this engine facility.
  • Thank's Steve for the kind words the footprint is not that big so try and find a place it is a neat kit.................Carl
  • I already have the engine service facility on the layout in my sawmill area and only one shay locomotive.
  • I have quite a assortment of loco's and not a lot of rolling stock so I am thinking about the work train next or the Machine Shop in a abandon look just thinking right now....Carl
  • Wonderful build Carl. It was great catching up on your build. Great build thread and pictures. I know you had fun with it and the quality is so good.

    Regards, Bill
