Model 1860s Locomotive Project

My daughter Beth gave me a wooden model 1860s locomotive kit for Christmas this year. I haven’t built a model since I was a teenager–back in the early 1950s. The instructions are divided into eighteen steps. Here I am working on step five. Some of the pieces are so tiny I have to handle them with tweezers. It takes me about an hour to complete a step. In the beginning, the pieces fell apart about as fast as I put them together. I’m getting the hang of it now. Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

Check back in a couple of weeks, and hopefully I can display the completed project.
