I must have missed earlier posts on this.  Is this a kit?  In N Scale?   
Looks very interesting and looks good so far!

I'm also wondering what that is.  The frame looks like a brass casting and outside frame is usually used in narrow gauge locos.  Maybe it is H0n3?

What did you use for handrail stanchions?

It is all stock Kato.

Looks good Mike!   Just an FYI, you also might want to check out Brian's laser-cut windows, if you are interested in upgrading from the factory Kato parts:

Thanks Mike! Now that it's done, I'm working on phase 2, which is an N-scale version of the HO-scale layout that was used for the opening and closing sequences of the show.  Already have many of the buildings necessary (lots of folks donated buildings when they found out what I was up to) and am going  to scratchbash Mister Rogers' little Cape Cod house as soon as another donated kit gets here from Canada (where, oddly enough, Mister Rogers started what would become Mister Rogers' Neighborhood).

I remember watching Mister Roger's show.  It used to alternate with Seseme Street when I was young, and I'd be mad I had to wait through an hour of Seseme Street for only a half hour of Mister Roger's...  I thought they had the proportions screwed up!

I'm also wondering what that is.  The frame looks like a brass casting and outside frame is usually used in narrow gauge locos.  Maybe it is H0n3?

My own design. A work in progress at this point.

Wow!  My hat, no my entire head, is off to you! That's what I call impressive modeling.   Is the frame made with lost-wax brass casting?

Thanks Peteski. I have to thank the railwire for helping me locate a source for the gears. I think it was Chris333 who pointed me in the right direction.
