    Hi all, Here is what I have been doing whilst Recuperating from my illness. Spent many hours just sitting at a table making this lot. Now "Thank God" I can now get on with making the railroad again as I feel alot better now.

    I really like the appearance of that little yellow critter! Any chance for a couple of close in views? Some background on it?

    :D

    Thumbs up

    Paul, my friend, you really know how to make a comeback to Trainboard!!! Those are prime examples of modeling! I am glad that you have recouperated and look forward to a new layout!

    Happy railroading!

    Thanks kind people,

    For the "Sidewinder" cab I used 1/8" by 1/16" for the main uprights, and plain 1/4" by 1/16" stripwood for the rest of it. The roof is a piece of Brass sheet I covered with wood. I used the Brass to add a little more weight to the shay.
    Thanks for asking.
    Paul

    Paul,
    Nice work! I am also wondering what you used as the Shays frame. the gearing an all.... Is that a MDC kit frame with On30 gauge wheels? Very interesting! :D Can't wait for more of all this!

    Hi John,
    Sorry to say this but the shay is an Bachmann 0n30 with all it top cut away. I re-did all the pipework back inside once I had the thing stripped down. The rest of the body was as I stated above.

    Cheers friend.

    All I can say is, anything you post Paul is gonna get my attention immediately... you are a GOD in railroad building IMHO, and I am staggered by the quality of your stuff. Pity I cant spend a few hours (years?) picking your brain to try and at least acquire the concepts, if none of the skill, of your techniques.
