Trying the train on for size

P4180038

I had the train fabricated by a great craftsman down in Durango, Dennis "Bones" Evers. Bones lives and breathes trains, and usually makes smaller working engines for zoos and such. This was his largest 'engine' to date. While I was sculpting the figure, Bones was making the train - and I didn't see the train until the figure was finished and at the foundry. When Dennis delivered the train, I just had to climb up there and make sure there was enough room for a figure. It was a relief when they finally fit together!
