Re: large scale Sunbeam headlight

Loco112, I just remembered that there are 1" scale Sunbeam plans in the July 1987 issue of Live Steam Magazine..

Who built it, and do they still have: Drawings of the individual parts? I'd like to put those in my war chest.
I built it, but there were no drawings...

Re: large scale Sunbeam headlight

I have this for sale on another group, and I've gotten a few questions re; what scale it is..
It will fit on a 2-1/2”, 3” or 3-1/2” scale locomotive..
However, since it was built with a 4” diameter tube, it may not look right on a “smaller” 2-1/2” scale locomotive..

large scale Sunbeam headlight

Here is a large scale Sunbeam headlight, the body is a 4” diameter tube, and it is just under 4-1/2” long.. This headlight has a 12V halogen front bulb, and a 12V LED light inside to light the side numberboards.. The front lens holder and the side numberboard hinges are dummies, and do not open. To ...

Re: Lake Shore Live Steamers

John, do you know what the minimum radius is on the elevated track at NEOLS? I have a 1" 4-8-4 chassis that I'd like to track test and I'm curious to see how sharp a curve it will be able to negotiate. Rob Gardner Rob, Sorry but I don’t know it off hand... I’m thinking it should be fine though..

Re: propane question

If you can submurse the tanks in a water bath it will help to keep them from freezing up. If the tender is large enough that would be ideal since it keeps getting refilled with warmer water. Or a tank around the bottles could be drained and refilled when refilling the tender if the water is getting...

Re: Fire to crown sheet distance

So should the front row of burners point slightly back? I'm using 6 marty burners, three rows of 2.. I can angle the front row back towards the firedoor, so that they aren't pointing right at the angle on the SS arch.. Or am I overthinking this?
Thanks...

I would like to see photos of your burner for the locomotive. I have a small 1” scale locomotive that I would like to fire with propane. Are you using an arch? What did yours burn before?
Chris, I finally dug the burners out..
These copy the “Marty” design, but smaller...

David, as far as I know the highline is complete, with no plans for any expansion..
The same for any ground track...

Re: Lake Shore Live Steamers

That does look like a pretty cool bridge! My riding cars are really set up for ground running. How "high" is the high line? Is that dual gauge, 4-3/4" and 3-1/2" ? (Yes, I re-read your last post!) At any rate, I might have to check that out next year. Thanks, John! David David, The highline varies ...

Re: Lake Shore Live Steamers

David,
I think you’d like the NEOLS track, I’d say that 90% of the highline is in the shade, and it has just been upgraded with a new bridge...
