More Brass Monster

A great pic of the Brass Monster. This thing is really a cool find, it is something different.

What's really interesting about standard gauge is how many people from the end of official Lionel standard gauge (the 30's) through now have brought out custom stuff. It's one of the things that attracts me to it. All trains lend themselves to being a sort of clay but I think standard gauge is one of the more interesting clay types.
It's large but not overbearing and it maintains a toy like quality. Although there is no way I'd let my kids run this toy around any track. I wonder what this thing looks like when it moves? Heck, this thing must make one racket when it moves around a track!
