Last Updated 22-Jan-2012 - What's New
I have not updated this site in quite a while, but that does not mean I haven't been busy on the locomotive. I have put most of the photo in sub-section called Picture Repository. I will format sections, apply some text, and put them on the main page as time permits.
Also, the Contact Me (below) is broken. I'll try to fix it soon.

|This is not intended to be a how-to article. There are setups and operations that could be used in your construction. Also, I have placed some drawings and some detailed instructions for some items here.|
