Steam loco build

It is a cold Norwegian winter snow -12°C outside. And with the Roadster garaged until April, it´s a nice opportunity to fiddle with some model engineering thinking

Really interesting Aage.

My late uncle used to model 3 1/2 and 5 inch steam locos. They were made by him from scratch.

Don't underestimate how heavy the finished loco is going to be . It would be very challenging to transport in the Roadster.

Even if this is a small narrow gauge locomotive the estimated dry weight is 125lbs, so the Roadster is out of the question as a transporter grin2

Excellent workmanship so far. Looking forward to the updates.

We should aim to have a virtual TM party when she first moves under her own steam.
