Office wall, finished!
This whole thing
started in about 2004. I decided to get the trains out of their
boxes and up onto the wall. It sounded so easy.
eight years: The first two shelves hold a Lionel O Scale 1947-1949
Freedom Train. The third shelf holds an MTH American Freedom Train
T-1 locomotive and a custom auxiliary tender made from the tender off
a Lionel 4-8-2 Mohawk, followed by the first four cars of K-Line's 2001-2002 American
Freedom Train model. The fourth shelf holds a brass O scale 3rd
Rail AFT GS-4 4449, followed by an AFT aux tender from MTH, a Lionel
BN Bicentennial U28C, and three more cars from K-Line. The fifth
and sixth shelves hold an antique brass Max Gray T&P 2-10-4
custom decorated for the AFT, followed by the last 11 of K-Line's
19 AFT cars. Painting the Max Gray model was an eight-year ordeal
but, as of 2012, it's all finally on display.
