    Just wanted to post some pictures of a long term project I've been working on. 5 years of weekends and some late nights.
    It is a 1/32 scale live steam mikado 1/2 inch bore with a 7/8 inch stroke. Burns denatured alcohol. No prints were used and the castings were made in my home foundry.

    Nice work! She's a beauty. That's running on standard 45mm garden railroad track?
