Re: 4-3/4” gauge LE 4-6-2

$2850.00? That seems like a very good deal. Are those LE rods? If so, then plated?

Mesa Grande fire

Surprised this hasn't shown up here. The Mesa Grande suffered some pretty bad losses due to fire. Other parts, thankfully, remain unscathed. The only link I can find is on facebook in Backyard Railroading. I've admired that place for years from articles in LS. Lets hope they can recover. https://www...

Locoparts have 1/8" I just got one a couple weeks ago. They are (I think) the old Coles ones. Not on their site. Email and ask.

Re: Which steam pump would you build?

Re: Which steam pump would you build?
