It is hard to believe that it was almost ten years ago I witnessed a CNC router in action for the very first time. I was fascinated with what I saw and simply had to have one! Although I had been in the creative end of the three dimensional sign business for most of my life I didn't really know what I would do with one - but I just knew it could do fantastic stuff.

Through extensive research and LOTS of hands-on practice I quickly found out that my MultiCam router was capable of just about anything imaginable.This journal will chronicle that journey to date and continue each week with two or three entries as I continue to explore just what is possible with this wonderful tool... -dan

Building a train - part thirteen

Tonight I installed the front number plate, the top of the steam dome with the whistle and a few of the other remaining bits. I also popped in the Heico Lighting LED modules and routed trim rings.  I quickly wired up the lights and then powered them up. It was instant magic!

I can hardly wait to get this thing to it's permanent home and perched up on the trestle with the log car!
