His goal seems to get to the rolling chases state according to his blog. Then he will move the locomotive to the Pichi Richi Railroad, and finish the boiler in his own shop.

The only part he did not make...was the headlamp.

This guys is my hero right now. Really does give me hope and optimism about a big project like this.

Yeah, the headlamp looks standard issue and not reproduced.   This is very interesting.

I must say I am worried about the Zig-Zag railway............

The project folded up due to "insurance concerns" and I am feeling quite broken by it.   You and I must catch up.

The Tug engine is progressing steadily, and our steam show went on without a hitch
