    Outside of touching up a few spots, this one is done. It is scratchbuilt (except for the wheels and castings of course). The 1400s were in and out of Lindenwood, mostly on the Scissorbill (River Div). I guess one could have snuck out on the Rolla Sub. At any rate, this one will be around Newburg.
    I'm not getting any younger and am making an effort to clean up the backlog of stuff sitting around in various stages or assembly. Next up will probably be the 40, the companion to the Ft. Leonard Wood Branch's other 2-10-2, the 19. After that will most likely be the 736, then the 3744. I also have a 1306 that I'm doing some minor mods on and am thinking about making it a coalburner. Further down the line is the 1051 and another low numbered 4100 if I make it that far.

    That's one good looking model. This might be one of the only 1400 ten-wheeler models that I've seen...I guess, then, it's not surprising that it's scratchbuilt.

    It would have been great fun to watch them run between Lindenwood and Chaffee during the war years.

    Best Regards,
