Well-Known Member I had a magnifying lamp above the model and the glass fell out of the magnifying lamp and directly on top of the model breaking the shaft for the machinery. I have since repaired it. 🤬🤯😤😩. I got a new engine for the roundhouse today and subsequently ordered two more. One is steam and the other one is a 40/50 ish switcher. I am bidding on a Climax steam engine. eBay has some nice brass painted steam engines for sale.

That is looking amazing. I suggest hitting the figures with a coating of dullcoat as they are pretty shiny.
