As you know Jack is now working on my Hudson and because we changed to the streamlined version with the disc drivers I've had to redo the rods. I've completed the connecting rods and started...

Hi Jesse Glad to hear that you are getting back to locomotive building. FYI my hudson is now in Jack's shop and he is working his magic on the beast. Check out Jacks build log.

Re: Mercer Commonwealth 6 wheel tender trucks

Hi Charlie Sorry to hear about all the trouble you have been experiencing getting those drawings scanned. You would think that getting drawings scanned/copied should be routine procedures for copier stores. It is frustrating when you try to do a good deed and it turns into an endurance event. I hope...

Mercer Commonwealth 6 wheel tender trucks

I recently purchased an old Mercer Commonwealth Tender truck kit with brakes and it was in good shape (beautiful castings) with only a few missing parts. However, the prints and drawings were in poor shape and I'm desperate to find someone who may have a copy of these prints, especially the side fra...
