Re: Pennsy E6 build

Andy, not to derail your project post but would you elaborate a little more on the CAD/Shapeways/foundary process? Those parts are beautiful! What kind of quantities? How do costs compare on 3D printed parts to cast pieces? I recently created a G-scale driver I was considering and found 3D printed n...

Re: Godshall H-10 locomotive

Head out to Riverside, I believe there is one there?

(A frequent suggestion around here: If you put your location in your signature that will help others. I searched old posts and found a reference to Disney barn.)

Re: The 1

Ed Hume (sometimes of these forums) has written a beautiful book about building a Class 'A' climax that is geared (no pun intended) towards CNC users. I did a review of the book for Digital Machinist magazine. Mike, That was Vol 12 No. 4, winter 2017. Thanks for the reminder, will add that to my li...

Re: Coles New Corliss Engine (Not the original one)

This is a page from Coles catalog No. 26. I was told this was the 'last' catalog. This is the only Corllss I can find in the '98 and '01 price lists. I have a '03 price list from Martin? Becker? after it moved to Hollywood. This referenced that same No. 26 catalog. They were sold to Texas? next, I n...

Re: Plum Cove "Generic Electric" - wiring headlight

two 12v batteries wired in parallel for 24v total Make sure you check that information again! What you stated is not true, PARALLEL gets you +12V (but more current) SERIES gets you +24V (same current). Is it a incandescent bulb or LED? LED polarity matters, bulb does not. (I have 20-yr old Cannonba...

Re: Help identify a part M-21 Mogul

Mr_Blonde, Thanks for the information! Do you have any sharable diagrams (without violating someone's copyright) of the tenders? I don't think I would be able to share the diagrams. The book and drawing are both available for purchase. If you are on the fence, I would buy the Diagram of Tenders for...
