Home What's New Building the Daylight Daylight Tender Observation Car Engine Stand Gondolas Gauge Bell Ringer Air Compressor Gas Switcher


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 some 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.

Here's a current picture of the Engine and Tender.  Still have some detailing to do when I find the time.





Four passenger cars have been built.  Three are regular passenger cars (below) and the other is an observation car.  The passenger cars are 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.
