TRAIN UPDATE Powertrain ready

The slip shafts have been installed to the motor and the wheels installed  the power train is ready to be assembled to the train frame.
I used threaded brass pipe for the slip shaft extensions because they fit snug.  I cut out the keyed slots  and then attached them to galvanized bell reducers.  I used 3/4" threaded pipe and 3/4" threaded pipe caps to complete the axels.  (see enclosed pictures).   I hope to have the engine frame assmebled and ready to run over the Holiday weekend.
Here are pictures .
