Big Boy: Week 7 - About to go on Vacation!

I'm about to go on a week long vacation to California to stay with some friends and explore Yosemite national park! So what you see above is about all I plan on doing until we come back in October. I'm glad I'm finally moving on to the last section of the train. Sadly, this is also the most complicated and detailed section. I think my three month deadline will be pretty accurate.

Big Boy: Week 5 - Engine progress.

I'm finally on the engine! This is it! I'm happy with the progress so far. I'm curious how far I'll be in 3 weeks.

Big Boy: Week 3. Love me Tender?

Sorry about the pun. I'm at week three with this build and I'm really happy with the progress! I'm about 98% done the tender. At this point I've put in a few hours a day and taken the weekends off. So, we'll say about 30 hours into it so far. I can't wait to get past the tender and start on the engine!!!
