Hey Pat, I was showing this topic to my friend and co-worker Jimmy this morning. While he is not a train guy, he does like the look of some of these things. He was blown away by the work(I showed the pictures and was explaining as best as I could) you did on this, and the amount of time(which I said had to be days on days).
He went on to say that you(as well as others here on this topic, and others I follow too) must really know what they are dealing with. I told him how you, Rick, and Pete(Norton) took me to Hudson school many occasions which I barely had a passing grade. I had also said I've learned quite a bit, but still don't have enough information to pass to someone else about what else is right or wrong with any engine. Glad you all take me to class every time I pop on here. That goes for everyone else too, especially hot water.
