      Absolutely stunning. How do you do that ? What's the process ? I have some old trains that could use a facelift too. Thanks.

      Hi Steven,
      Thanx for the compliments!I put a lot of work into them,sand all old paint and rust off first.Then 3 to 4 coats of krylon primer and gloss paint.Decals were custom made for the train by LBR Enterprises.Then 1 or 2 coats of krylon clear coat to seal it all.I enjoy bringing them back to life.
