Ted,

You are correct. I retired from Chevron in 1996 with 33 years service and I can tell you that since then I have had more things (work) to do than there seems to be hours in a day. But  they are all fun stuff, in my case, golf, model railroading, Koi pond and such. Love it.

A couple of pics showing how much I have removed from the B'mann chassis. I may need a tad bit more towards the cab...........................







Not a real easy project, but then I have never attempted anything like this. I am having lots of fun and that is what this hobby is all about.

Just to let you know that I have not quit on my project here are a couple of bad images, can't seem to find good lighting and specially hard with the high gloss finish. Once all decals are on the unit will be heavily weathered. I have a DVD which shows 3809 running on the Modoc Line. I will pay homage to its hard work and possibly its last run in the West.

Good afternoon from God's Country,

Where is Jason? Hope he is well. My build goes on. I have applied some tru-color paints and was ready to apply chalks and dry brushing when I realized that I had not applied cab ladders yet. I know the boiler is not sitting properly and the tender is a low rider. I still have not finished the "front porch". I am going to put new #'s on the boards and am leaning towards a train # such as I-943 instead of X3809.
