    Truly a work of art indeed George. :bow: All of the nominations were exceptional as well, making this one of THE toughest votes I have had to decide upon in quite a while. Thank you evr so much for the play-by-play on the making of this engine as well.

    I would like to thank everyone who voted for my engine. Having been given this honor once before I personally voted for one of the other engines. As most of you know I do this work with great enthusiasm and really enjoy sharing it with others. Since joining this board I believe the quality of the work has grown by leaps and everyone should be extremely proud of the work they do. For those able to attend the upcoming show at NAMES I will have the engine there, along with some of my other projects.
    My most sincere thanks,
    George

    Congratulations George.

    I would like to suggest that the 2nd and 3rd place engines be eligible for nomination in future P.O.M.

    Just an idea.

    All three engines are light years ahead of anything I can do and I continue to be amazed by the ingenuity and craftsmanship exhibited by the builders.

    Congratulation George, to a well deserved win. Your willingness to pass on information to all of us has been greatly apreciated also.

    There were two other masterpieces also. Doc & Steve, your engines are great.

    Great engine, George. All of the engines were so nice I felt like acting like I was voting in Chicago and could vote for each one of them.
