Re: 1/4 scale traction headlamps

Thanks for the info. Steve, and congratulations on getting her out this year. I doubt anyone would complain if you posted pictures of her first outing.

Re: 1/4 scale traction headlamps

Hi Steve, can you tell me a bit about your steam traction engine? It looks like a 3" or 4" Foster? We're does it live and when what's is built?? Here is our 4" Foster in Oklahoma. Thank you, Mike

Re: Large scale sight glass

Bob, give me a 12 hours to talk with my son about this sight glass. Possibly for our 4' Foster traction engine. And may I ask, The body, are the dimensions of the body 1" by 1 3/8th's ? or rather 1" by 2 3/8th's? (questioning the length of the body per the picture). Thanks Mike

Re: Henry Greenly

7.5" Gauge 6" scale Greenly Pacific here!! And she looks Greenly doesn't she! As of mid January she is about to come out of a heavy overhaul with new stays and flues and a configuration that will much more closely resemble Green Goddess.

Re: Belpaire Boiler for a PRR G-5

Nice work Marty, I have completed chassis for an LMS Black 5 (highlander, 1.5" scale, 7.5" gauge) that needs a bel pair boiler. Martin Evans design and I have the drawings. Are you able to give me an approx. quote for this boiler? Non superheated. Feel free to PM me if you would like. Thank you. Mike

Re: Fire watch, solid fuel run at Train Mountain?

John Haines' Tintern Abbey is now a coal burner, and she has not been to TM since about 1998. I would LOVE to attack the serpentine with her on a chilly calm morning. Does anybody know the min radius of curvature of the track from the offloading bay to the serpentine? Is it 60 feet plus?
