Lots of work in that.  Even in the decaling alone!  Bending the nose decals must have been maddening!

That thing is beautiful. Glad I don't model CNW or I'd have my finger on the trigger.

That's a masterpiece.  I enjoy kitbashing steam, but I'll never produce something like that.  That's up there with Max Magliaro's N scale PRR T1 in terms of beauty.

Wow! It didn't break 4 figures, but it got into brass range and sold for $665.00

And now he's got a car on there that was used during operating sessions at the Reid Bros.  Comes with autographed CVS waybill even!

Pretty cool piece of history.
