Re: Looking for input

Why not use Krieder's Berkshire castings and simply extend the design from a 2-8-4 to a 2-10-4? That'd be pretty darn close chassis wise to the TP locomotive. then put a 12 inch boiler on it instead. this would get you around having to design a lot of your own castings, patterns etc which would sign...

Re: TM 2021 Prep

do many people make temporary propane conversions from coal for Train mountain? Not sure what the best way to do a temporary propane setup would be for a 4-6-0, pacific etc?

Re: Boston & Albany K6b Pacific

Great to see an update. Did you have to alter much to fit those cylinders to the frame? For example particularly the height of the cylinder centerline

Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

Wasn't there also a LE 2-8-0 offered at one time using 0-6-0/2-6-0 parts?

Re: Timken 1111 (four aces)

The four aces was thus turned into the Northern Pacific A2 class. I'd search for the Northern Pacific drawings instead of the timken drawings. Here is a link with basic dimensions: http://steamlocomotive.com/locobase.php?country=USA&wheel=4-8-4&railroad=np Not sure how exact of a model you are wanti...

didn't someone start a WPY 70 class 2-8-2 in 2.5 inch scale ?

Also surprising no one has built a EBT 2-8-2 or a ETWNC 4-6-0 in 2.5 inch scale.

Re: Lee Stephens Southern PS-4

would also be curious as to what happened to the East Coast patterns. I think they also made castings for a NYC 4-6-4 and a B&M 4-8-2.
