Default For Anyone Building Engine Carts...

Just finished watching every single youtube video posted by Engels Coach Shop of Joliet, MT. Simply awesome craftsmanship, from basic wooden wheel building to custom blacksmithing of wagon hardware. They just completed two 20 mule team borax wagons and are currently working on an International grain wagon. Give them a looksee.

I saw those too Doc, and I agree they are unbelievable!
To anybody who doesn't know, you need to realize the back wheels on those 20 Mule Team Borax wagons are somewhere near 7ft tall and the steel band / wheel is 8 in wide and an inch thick!
Simply amazing to watch them put it all together.
The only thing they did not do themselves was roll the Bands for those back wheels. Because they did not have equipment heavy enough. But they did heat them in a fire and Shrink them on themselves which was worth watching.
