Do you build the whole train? If so do you have any pics of them? I would love to see the train that whistle goes on

Everything i build comes with a redneck warranty. If it breaks you get to keep both pieces.

That whistle is for a stationary engine, this is my site where you can identify the different models of Weeden steam engines, I also sell parts for them.

This is a Case steam engine I build by modifying a British toy steam tractor

Very cool! I guess most of us forget just how wide spread steam power was used in the past. I really liked the Case tractor build you did. I bet you were all most sad to finish that building that one. It looks like one of those projects where the build is all most more enjoyable than the finished project

So true, it now sits on a shelf until its turn to take a spin around the patio. It took several months working off and on to finish it, with other smaller projects in between. I am now working on a G Gauge Shay style locomotive in my "spare" time.
