Re: Baldwin Locomotive Drawing Resources

David, I'm interested in your comment on the head light being an early Pyle National. Do you have any references to early Pyle products? I was told years ago by the retired shop foreman of Eugene, that these head lights were shop made on the SP. The few I have been able to examine had no identificat...

Re: Baldwin Locomotive Drawing Resources

Here is a in service pic of the engine with a 70-C-9 tender behind it that a friend sent me and gave me permission to post to the board.

Note the over sized 20" head light. It makes the smokebox front look rather small.

Regards,

Doug

Hey Everyone, Does anyone have libraries, societies, and museums to reach out to for Baldwin drawings? I am looking for drawing information on a 70-C-9 Vanderbilt tender. I just reached out to the Sacramento Museum and the Southern Pacific Historical and Technical society, since this was for a Sout...

Re: Help identify a part M-21 Mogul

#1843 has an injector plumbed in instead of the BL heater. And it otherwise appears operable, not on a scrap line. Sadly, I witnessed many an SP scrap line in the San Francisco Bay area in the late 1950s. Scarring images... RussN The 1838 has either a 90 R-3 or 4 tender. The 1839 has a 90 R 1 or 2 ...

Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

Did Jim Gould offer drawings with his SP M10 project that he did a number of years ago?

Re: Worthington FWH and Franklin booster throttle valve

Very nice rendering! Did you find one to measure, or actually come across Worthington data?

Any idea of the physical size difference between the 2-B and the 3-B? The only data I have found just mentions the difference in the pipe sizes.

Thanks!

Re: Drawings for Alkire's B&O Pacific

Thanks for posting the url to the auction. Interesting stuff. I don't know what Doug Alkire used on his loco, so can't comment if the loco in the auction follows his or not, but the top casting in the lead truck is a casting from the "Doc Fixit" patterns for the SP A-6 atlantic. This is not the lead...

Re: Uintah #20 0-6-2t

The De Golyer library at SMU has an erecting diagram for a Uintah 0-6-2 built in 1905. I have no idea if it is the same engine or not. Might be worth a look.

Regards,

Re: Around the country

Hi Pat, Depending on what your ultimate priorities are, you might consider reversing your direction of travel, and hit Yellowstone and Glacier NPs in the end of August, and heading down south to Florida from there. The roads in Glacier are often not completely cleared of snow until July, and both pa...

Re: Steam Distraction

Nice looking project.

Is a canopy in the plans? That way you could operate it for more than a couple of days in the Oregon summer!

Re: Bolster clearance question

In looking at various instructions online the information I'm getting is to have one set of trucks with about a 1/16 clearance on the bolsters, which results in the frame being more stable for riding. Then the second truck should have about 1/4 inch under it's bolsters. This difference is needed fo...
