Hi Bobby.   While you lot have been disappearing under floods and snow, this end of the world has turned into a desert. Nudged 130 several times.  Needless to say, there hasn't been much going on outside. My accident slowed me down more than expected, but some medication and significant diet changes has worked and now its all under control.
Several project litter the shop. The steam loco required a different motion layout to the original, so I had a go at making the casting required. This is the wooden pattern and the gunmetal product.  I wasn't real impressed with the casting, but it didn't cost much.
