I figure that would be a great way to show those who are not fortunate enough to own one (yet) just what a wonderful model they are. I acquired one about a year ago and with the help of old Erector buddy I was able to restore it. I never realized what a beautiful train it is until I started to assemble it.

When that was finished I made a stand for it. I painted it all and it is on display in my Gilbert Room.

I installed a rheostat to control the P56G Motor inside. That way I can slow the speed down and let folks see the mechanisms as they operate. Otherwise the wheels and linkages are just a blur. I even put a cheap paper sign on it for looks sake.
