Re: Home Railway Journal - relaunching in 2014

UPDATE: HRJ should be considered defunct at this time. Having a full time job and a new baby (surprise!) plus my other family obligations have stolen literally every moment of my time. I honestly see no way to make the magazine a reality at this time. I cannot express my sorrow strongly enough to yo...

Re: Seeking curly spoke a 4 hole industrial-style wheels

Have seen some beautiful loco wheels with cracked spokes form being removed from the mold too fast. Kap Kap, those are mighty nice! We should t...

Lister Type D in US?

Hi folks. I am looking for a reasonably priced Lister Type D that is on this side of the Atlantic. I can find plenty in the UK at good prices, but shipping would cost almost 500 bucks!

Thanks!

Re: Seeking curly spoke a 4 hole industrial-style wheels

PM research has these in 3 1/2" diameter, if that is close enough. http://www.pmmodelengines.com/shop/gas-accessories/flywheel-castings/ The FWC-S12B is a bronze flywheel in that style.

Seeking curly spoke a 4 hole industrial-style wheels

Hi folks.

I'm looking for wheels like these in 4-5-6" diameters for an upcoming project (and perhaps article).

I'd like to order a ready made part rather than make my own patterns and have them run.

Thanks!

Seek Tinkerbell drawings in the US

Hey folks. I'm looking for any drawings for the Roger marsh designed Tinkerbell type locos seen most often in the UK.

They are available over there on a limited basis, but shipping and the poor $$$ exchange rate make it prohibitive.

Thanks

Chris
