NMRA 2015 Calendar Photo

It's a grand day as D.C. Cebula has had a photo of the railroad featured in the 2015 NMRA Model Railroad calendar.
American Civil War model railroads are a very infrequent feature in all railroad model magazines primarily because so few people do model this era. A primary reason being the lack of quality locomotives and for any manufacturers, the challenge of installing sound. As noted in the caption, a Micro-Tsunami sound decoder has been installed in this 4-4-0 which is all hand done by the modeller; in this case myself. The procedure takes about 20 plus hours including altering the locomotive to fit the prototypical appearance of the time. 
So congratulations to D.C. who has also been a strong contributor to the construction and superb modeling of this railroad. There is a label devoted to his skillful creations if you would like to see more of his work.
