Over the past several years, I've been busy working on various projects that I thought may be of interest to other large scale model railroading enthusiasts.

One of the most challenging project was Building the Daylight.  It is a live steam locomotive in 1/8" scale (7-1/2" gauge). The wheel arrangement is 4-8-4 which puts it in the Northern class.  The engine is pretty much done except for the detailing.  The Tender is in the same state as the engine, meaning it needs a bit of detailing

Here's some videos of the first steam-up in Oct 2008.

Want to own the Daylight?  Here's your chance.

Been entertaining the thought of selling the Daylight engine, tender and 2 passenger cars (possibly 4) if the right offer comes along.  Any serious offer will be considered.  Take a look at how this was built and you know what I mean by serious (+5,000 hours and +$20K in materials, etc.).

            Here's the Engine before the lettering was done.
 
 

 

 

This is with the Tender freshly painted (need to get more current pictures with the lettering done)....

 

So far two passenger cars have been built.  One is a regular passenger car (below) and the other an observation car.  The passenger car is the same as the observation car without the bobtail end. 

 

 Here's a link to the Observation Car

 

 

 

Some other things that may be of interest are a Gas Switcher, Gondolas, Engine Stand and a few other things. 

Check out the What's New section to see what was recently done.
