Re: Wood Firing a Chloe

Thanks to everyone for all the replies. I have one more question. Which wood species would be best? I think Eucalyptus would be too hot and sappy. Oak maybe?

Wood Firing a Chloe

Hi, I have an ongoing Allen Chloe project and I was curious if anyone on here has fired one using wood. I live on the west coast, so coal isn't easy to come by and propane is the norm. I guess my question is whether or not any of you have done this successfully? If so, did you use Gene Allen's coal ...

The suppliers that provided them didn't provide any 6 axle passenger trucks to go with them. So I now turn to the Chaski community. ...

Thanks for the link. Living in Northern CA, I have seen the AC-12 you are talking about. I'll probably make a trip to the CSRM Library archives at some point as well.

Has anyone every tried to build an SP 2-8-8-4 AC-9?

Hello everyone! I've been in the hobby for a little over a year now and I have a couple projects in mind. One is a small locomotive that is in an early stage. I want to do that to get a better feel on building a locomotive. Once that is complete, I intend to start a much longer-term project for my d...
