Some cars are old-time antiques and other home-made. Everyone will be featured separately as I rebuilt them for better running standards. The engine is a brass 0-6-0 that I bought from an old friend in Tucson AZ. about 14 years ago. The purpose of buying it was for this type of train. It has that John Allen flavour and I’m very pleased with it pulling 10 cars on all my grades. That first gondola has wavy sides to emphasize it’s seen heavy use. Notice the wavy edge of the layout to break up the straight edge of most layouts. There is no point in more scenery in this area until the backdrop is installed. 116 Apache Stone Products used in this scene. I never showed you how to make the three varieties of cactus!
