Andrew. S. has one now, if you have 18.5K - or your right arm - to spare…

John - thanks for your splendid additions, and glad you like the thread

Both stunning. That 1675 insert is very similar to mine, isn't it!?

Karl, yes our inserts are very similar. Amazing how any insert can make such a big difference. David I'm flattered, but as rare as the Rail 1655 is, I'm sure this one will be with me for a long time. Linesiders thanks for the kind words. Stay warm in Boston.
