Live Steam at Springfield again this year.

MRR #3 is seen on display at Springfield last month. Nice to get that great smell of a steam engine while walking between the buildings.

A good looking engine. I was glad to see a Maine display once again.

A few more details added

I staged the structure with a few other FOS offerings.
Yesterday I decided to add a few more details to the FOS kit. It needed a ladder to get down to the water, some pigeons that are by BEST, a few boards on the roof, oars on the deck and I added heavy wire screening that is rusted up to the window...George Dutka

The backside of the building.
The ladder is an Osborn detail. Don't recall the make of the oars.

FOS "Kit-of-the-Month"

I added more details to the platform then is included in the kit. I still will add a ladder and a few pigeons.
I just finished another kit of the month today. It is one from the first offering from 2019. It will be set in my waterfront scene once I have enough building constructed to lay out the waters edge...George Dutka

The no wake 5mph sign is made using a stencil included with the kit. I think it turned out well.
