Castle Update June 01 2022

On my first factory visit in over two years I was pleased to see good progress continues. The tenders are now being varnished and will be assembled. I checked the loco bodies and these have been sent for cleaning and painting. The Faulhaber motors safely arrived so the gearboxes can be assembled. Once the tenders are completed the frames, wheels, motion will be assembled.

Here are some pictures from my inspection.
