Quarter size "Lightning"

Full SizeWorkshopEngine Shed

1901 Kansas City Hay Press Co. "Lightning"
1/4 size model. Castings by Marv Hedburg. USA.
This is the first model made from Marv's castings. He has taken
years to get these beautiful castings to the stage where a model can be built.
I have never seen castings as perfect as these.
I am honoured to have been the first to build this unit. (I made it in 2008)
We had minor details to sort as it progressed but, now it is running perfectly.
This ranks with the best I have made over the years.
