Here comes the train!

Normally one would lay tracks and then mount the scale train to them. But in this case the train engine chassis is purposely warped both vertically and horizontally for dramatic effect and so it was necessary to mount the train onto place and then position the tracks under the wheels. It took a little fiddling but things went smoothly. The wheels were temporarily mounted so they can be removed for painting. Two half inch steel rods plus the billboard actually hold the train in position.

Tomorrow once everything sets permanently I can begin the work on the train. Stay tuned...
