Some Little Baloney

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Hello My Friends Haven't posted anything on the little Hudson for a while. But first, to answer Roberts question about the Valve Pilot. 5344 was not initially fitted with a Valve Pilot.

Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line

Here are a few more. I just love my little piece of dirt here in the mountains. The trees are finally starting to be real trees instead of pitiful little twigs. The railway is well over half finished. At one time this railway was only a hallucination, with a line of rocks in the dirt to show where i...

Re: Displacement lubricator questions

Hello My Friends One very important aspect that hasn't been mentioned is the type of oil used. Much steam cylinder oil is of the detergent type. This detergent helps the oil to atomize and also helps it's wetting characteristics. This oil is for a mechanical piston type lubricator and will not work ...

Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line

Hello My Friends Well it's been a while since anything was posted concerning the railway. Not much happened during the winter, lots of snow and rain. Springtime finally sprung, and the weather has been beautiful. Another reason not much has happened is that I was sick for about a month. No..not the ...

Re: Baldwin wood cab roof material?

Hello My Friends
The copper sheets were held down to the cab roof in two ways. Tiny nails were used over the framing under the roof planks. The heads were hidden under the folded over strips. #90 spray adhesive was also used.
