The Thunderbox - part 2

Not only is the mighty Thunderbox complete but it has seen action in a game!

Here it is being powered by my horrible Wild West train and crewed by members of my Anglophobian brigade.

Great work Tim!

Really nice. The wood looks great...

Maybe a coat of paint for the train to make it look less colourful? But I kind of like it. :)

Toy train outside on the lawn: Superb.

Thanks Alan. Is the Duchy planning a railway network at all?

The 'wood' is....wood. Balsa with the planking marked using a ballpoint pen and topped off with a coat of Ronseal woodstain.
I am continually tempted to paint the loco but I rather like it as is.

I'm glad we managed it last week - it's damn cold now!

Excellent! Love the thunder box. but ummh sorry, I must be missing something, what's wrong with the colour of the train?

Tim,
Army Red/White is currently thinking about the potentialities/possiblities of a funicular railway next year...

Now that really will be a modelling challenge!
