Re: "Civil Engineering for Outdoor Railroads"

Sad that 'Discover Live Steam' doesn't stay a bit more up to date: https://www.discoverlivesteam.com/disco ... page2.html

You might try Trainmaster Models in Georgia.
According to a capture on the "Wayback Machine" in 2009 of Doug's website they were selling his books.

Re: "Civil Engineering for Outdoor Railroads"

Mr. Clemens, I just perused the books on the site linked to by Mr. Adams. Sorry to say, I did not find Doug's book on their list of books. If you have a specific question please ask as I worked with Doug proofreading his books for him. I have a copy of all his Civil Engineering for Riding Railroad ...

Doug passed in March, 2018.

Hey Dave, are you in NJ, PA or FL? We need to keep up with you so where are you 'stationed' now?

Re: McMaster carr part number

not disagreeing with you, just making an observation https://www.homedepot.com/s/3%252F8%2520copper%2520tubing?NCNI-5 The designation or use is the key to the whole thing, not to say that a plumber cannot use refrigeration tubing or vice-versa but it is certainly sad to order a few hundred dollars ...

Re: McMaster carr part number

1/4" copper tubing is 3/8" OD.... if you're going to use Ø 3/4" tubing for flue tubes, you had better bore a Ø 7/8" hole for it.

Re: McMaster carr part number

Keep in mind that refrigeration tubing is measured by it's outside diameter or O.D.: ¼, ½, 5/8, ¾, 7/8, 1-1/8, 1-3/8, 1-5/8, etc. Plumbing tubing is measured by it's inside diameter or I.D. : 1/8, ¼, ½, ¾, 1, 1-1/4, 1-1/2, 1-3/4,etc.

Re: Water treatment for iron boiler?

The physics of mother nature are winning in all aspects - it's her desire to take everything to it's basic element. Ev...

Re: Water treatment for iron boiler?

Marty Knox; you gave us some great advice recently in answer to these questions so maybe you will reiterate? The 'new place' is on a well and we are certain that it will need 'treatment' too... It has been tested as safe for humans - but probably not safe for our locomotive to 'drink'.
