Re: Baldwin S12, what are these?

I believe the rectangle one is the class light bracket and the round item is the electrical plug for same.

Agree - the set w/o brake hangers. Looks like a case for CI bolsters.

I was thinking the same thing, but didn't remember RRS having those cast on rocker points on top of the bolster like these have.

MDM F-unit wiring

Folks, I'm helping a friend sort out the wiring on his loco. Would anyone have a scanned copy of the wiring instructions that I could beg/borrow or steal?

Re: LOUD diesel horns?

I'll second the Stebel horns. I have a "nautilus truck horn" that is a single note at 300hz. It's real close to one of the WABCO single note hooters that Baldwin used on their early switchers.

Do you see any benefits to drying the steam out by running the steam supply thru the firebox? I've read that on some other atomizers that it was suggested to do so. I've also read about ...

Re: Ball valves

This post is 14 years old WOW The ball valve is the worst valve to use for a throttle. Sorry that's how I feel about it. I ended up putting on the valve that Locoparts recommended way back in the thread when I finished the pacific 14 years ago. No problems yet. If it wears out before I die I guess ...
