Baby trains

In Wednesdays post you will have noticed that I have got a bit further in completing my log train. Thanks to Grant Morells advice I cut some buts of Rhododendron off the 30' tree in the front yard. This was then cut into sections. This is a not bad representation of a cut down tree. It looks like something out of the KATO 'pocket line' series of short trains.

And the whole train is less than 1' long. Still needs the chains, some pivots and coupling devices. Oh and paint as well.

Looks more interesting than 3 Dc's and 70 odd log wagons. Well a bit more modelable anyway.

It looks great. I like the paint job on the Price Cb and those rhododendron sticks look just right.
