steam train locomotive shunter

"Finished"!, its taken many hours but finally done, a great western steam shunt locomotive !, probably not accurate but " hey" i ,m not botherd !, considering it started out as an old gas cylinder and sheet steel off cutts, plus nuts , bolts, now its primariley a "wood burner" but has so many other uses !, lndoor/outdoor orniament, plant holder, item holder etc, now the burner when lit , the smoke will come out of the funnel and the small door on the cylinder inside the cab will draw in oxygen to fuel the fire, but also glow just as a real firebox does !, its heavy as well, the burner viewer has a mesh cover for safety, you fuel the fire by putting in wood from the front part of the cylinder, i suppose i could now make more because ive made "jigs" as i was making this one ! , no more measuring lol, also made templates as well. I think .

You can tell you've put the effort and the hours in on it Joe well done.
I had a little chuckle when I saw the GWR lettering, one of the derogatory terms for the GWR is Gas Works Railway, quite appropriate seeing the main part is an old gas cylinder!!!!

Cheers John
