I finally got enough bench time to get near the end on this project.  I'm not able to go to the national next week because of a surgery deal but the trolley is going with a friend to be judged in the contest.

It is close here.  Final detail painting and weathering is all that is left.

I did get the scaffolding to work for the contest presentation along with the doors.

So here is the exterior with a load of poles on and various clutter.

Great to see you back, Bob.
Now I wish I'd sent my annual birthday greeting to Bob Hamm (his birthday adjoins my wife's natal day: it's a joke between us). I'd have given him a heads up your model's coming. Not that you need it.
Best wishes with the knife job coming up. Please leave instructions with your friend how to post the contest results here.
Working on my second million. I gave up on the first.

Hey Bob,
First of all I wish you all the best in your upcoming surgery.  And the model is beautiful.  It should win a prize or two at the show.

BTW, I am holding you to that invite to come see the layout in a few weeks after your surgery. 

 ;D ;D ;D

Thank you one and all for your encouragement and well wishes.

I gave the trolley motor to Tom today to take it to the national.  I'll know by next Friday how it does.


Bruce.......... you are always welcome here.
