The 0-4-0 locomotive that I've been posting in the "Hobbies" forum has progressed as far as I can take it until the weather warms up so it can be painted.

I am starting on building a 2-8-8-2 locomotive and his locomotive only gets worked on when the weather is too cold to be out working on the new house.
So I would like your input on how it gets posted on the forum.

1 - If I post as it progresses, there could be days, weeks or even months between updates.

2 - Or I can wait until the project is finished and then post the complete build from start to finish at one time.

I like a little bit of suspense. At least with your builds everyone knows you do get back to it with an update. Whichever way you choose is fine with me. Thanks.

I always read your locomotive projects.  I like that's its ongoing, may be a bit between updates, but I enjoy the surprise.

That's a monster locomotive! I think posting it all a once would be fine, even though I enjoy your builds.

That sounds like one "Big Boy" locomotive.

Ray I personally enjoy the updates as you go. I enjoy looking at all the details. I follow your builds so they show up my "content I follow " . It's always nice to see a post and progress. Tom

4-8-8-4 were the Big boys.

I didn't vote, Ray. I think you should post however it best fits your available time. I'll read them either way.

My bad on the big boy. I saw the 8-8 and it went to my head. Still a big machine though and fascinating to watch films of.

My locomotive will be similar but not an exact replica.

Unlike most modelers who build models that look just like the original locomotive, I build what is called "freelance" models.
