A little scratch-built "Bobber" - December 2012

 

 

Begun in December 2007, I had sought to honor my Dad by running his "Challenger" and "Big Boy" HO steam locomotives around the Christmas Tree.  He had passed on a couple of years prior.  So I picked up some code 100 Atlas track and an inexpensive DC transformer at the local hobby shop, and the 30-year-old-plus steam engines circled around the living room floor just fine, though not something my wife would allow me to maintain there for long! Well, one thing led to another, and by February 2008 I had drawn up some plans for something a little more . . . . . . .
