Re: Converting a Coles 0-4-0 to a NG 0-4-4t

Great choice Nico. I always knew there was a plantation loco hiding in that 0-4-0.

Any clues where it’s going to end up?

The Valley Railroad just did a superb job restoring an NH caboose.
Not 100% sure. It was more important to save it and then sort out where it will land upon completion.

start with something small..

you have NO IDEA how much work it is to build an articulated locomotive and how many decades it will take to finish if you are just getting started.
I was just going to say exactly the same thing Bill. The whole "Crawl before walking, walk before running" thing.

Re: GoFundMe: Help move Long Island RR caboose #29

Hey folks, for the price of a cup of coffee (not even a good one), you could help preserve history. There is a deadline before it will be scrapped, and it is not that far off.

Thanks!
