If you don't already have a lathe, you'll need one for this project. A lathe is an immensely useful tool, once you get the hang of what it's all about. This locomotive is designed to be built on a small lathe, one with a swing of about 3" or so. Two of the most common of these are the Taig and the Sherline.
