After my new shop is ready and the forklift was made it was time to build this T and J 99 Train. It’s mainly made out of Yellow Poplar (Liriodendron tulipifera L.) for the light – and Merbau for the dark parts. It was a fun build. For me the bull bar was the most difficult and I needed three attempts before I was satisfied.

Oh, Dutch, that is extraordinary … an heirloom piece, for sure!

I won’t ask how many hours; rather, how many months?

I’m an old railroad man and your detail is amazing. Great work.
