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!

Hi all, I'm looking for locos that have been preserved that have the following items on them, or data on these items: I'm looking for a preserved loco or data for a Worthington 2-B feedwater heater. I'm also looking for a loco that has the Franklin booster throttle valve attached to the back of the ...

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,

Doug

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...

Re: 3LD510 Lombardini

Jorg50, Lombardini engines have a very good reputation. I think you will be impressed with the robust simplicity of the engine. That engine is post 1980, as before 80, it was model 510. That model is no longer available in the US due to not being able to meet emission standards, and seems to be some...

Re: Mogul info

The Southern Pacific had a couple of classes of Moguls that had piston valves and Walchearts gear on them. The class M10, built in 1912 by Baldwin, and the class M21, which while classed as a rebuild, was for all intents and purposes new locos, built in the late 20's in Houston. Both classes had 63"...

Re: 3/4" Scale Boxcar Drawings/Plans

Hi Frank, The WP car in the first image was built between 1910 and 1918. I can say that because the WP was a late RR, and started operations in 1910, and the USRA designs were out by 1918, and this would have been a single sheath car with outside bracing then. If you look closer however, I think you...
