Re: Choosing the right drawing

Re: Choosing the right drawing

Hi, Richard The main problem is the lack of specification. The specification is the main drawing document. Unfortunately, this document does not exist. I would also guess that where the word "Style" is used, there likely was more than one version used concurrently, either because it was required by ...

Choosing the right drawing

I am building a 3D model of the Y3a locomotive. Suddenly, I was faced with the difficulty of choosing the right drawing. This is slowing down creating a model.

Hi All,

I'm looking for information (drawings) about brake cylinder 21-B 14 x 10 inch.

Re: 12" Guage Wheel Standard

Re: 12" Guage Wheel Standard

It's bad that there is no standard for a track of 12 ". Which rail is used for the 12 "gauge?
