More progress on my loco, gosh the time it takes is zapping hours and hours getting things to fit right and line up. I have run out of materials now so need to do a small order so I can carry on.40FAD676-F538-4BC3-BC57-ED9EEE9A41C5.jpeg

Well as with most loco builds I have encountered lots of small fiddly problems that take ages to sort and time has not been on my side with other commitments.the plumbing is way harder than I thought to get right.received_892554247899625.jpegreceived_287824405645854.jpeg

Sound like a big project yellowchickenparrot, by then maybe your son will be able to help you finish it so you may save a year or two so not reaching the half way mark

I have been making the splash guards that go over the tops of the wheels which has taken me three hours to cut shape and solder and I got another four to go. it’s so hard to solder as the heat travels down the metal and you then melt other bits you have just done. Absolute nightmare
