    KJ, that was really nice to watch. Sort of defines "Labor of Love". Smooth running little beastie. I had an uncle-in-law who machined his own steam locomotives that really impressed me. He actually made his whole railroad and dioramas right down to the tracks and ties but what you have shown here is absolutely stunning in it's scale precision.

    Thanks for sharing that. Unreal, I can really admire the patience, and mechanical genius behind that.

    If it were mine, I would have been way too paranoid to stick loose metal parts on top of the running engine like that. I guess this guy had a lot of faith in his creation!
