I would love to see you got those Lionels working and looking so good, the tender drive is something I didn't think of doing and looks great. But what did you do with the wheels and valve gear etc. I reckon you just inspired me to do something again

Thanks Knuddlefisch
Thanks for those extra pictures can I ask what is the donor chassis for the J locomotive? or have you extended the one for the Hudson. Either way I am going to have a shot at the J which looks great

Hello Enrico. Sorry, but I will be unable to make it. It turns out the family is indeed having fake pre-Christmas Christmas on that weekend as I am work over the holidays. We'll see about next time. Thanks for the invite.
