Re: Project: N&W class J on 5"gauge

Chris, all I can say is "WOW"! Wish I was this far along my C&O J-3a. Love seeing your construction techniques as the Greenbrier are of the same generation of steam as the N&W J's. Especially your pilot truck. Giving some good ideas, for sure. Would love to see even more photos of the lead truck fra...

Re: D&RGW steel caboose in 1.5

TennPass,

Do you have a photo of the prototype you are going after? Will it be in the black with white trim/end stripes scheme? BTW, I gather you're more of a fan of Tennessee Pass than the Moffat Route, lol?

Thanks,

Re: battle for the hill

Wow! Impressive. Thanks for sharing, Dan! Glad to see the 4005 on the rails and in steam. Looks like he also bought a lot of Tom's freight rolling stock as well. Looks great. Bet she'll pull a lot more than 17 freight cars, lol.

Re: Riding scale 4-8-4

Well, to make this thread a little more "Grand Scale" relevant, Mike Weldon in Fordland, MO has already built a similar 3776 class ATSF 4-8-4 in 1.5" scale and is very well along on a 3" scale version. A few years ago, the running gear was done and the boiler was mounted on the chassis. Not many pho...

Re: A GREAT DAY AT THE PLS

Dave,

Great to see your daughter enjoying a nice day steaming and running the 1361 with you. 25 tomato pies? Never heard of those before. Something unique to Jersey, lol? Working on my gut as well, lol.

Re: 1” scale D&RGW Alco RS-3s

Bumping this thread up again. I got the RS-3's out this weekend at the PVLS annual Father's Day meet and ran them for about 3 hours Saturday night and probably 3 hours again on Sunday with no issues. These are some great engines and are very easy to operate. They will scoot right along at top speed ...

Re: The passing of Bob Reedy

Does anyone have a reference to the month and year that Bob had the article about the construction of his PRR Atlantic in Live Steam? I've misplaced it and would like to pick up another copy of it. Had a lot of great tips and tricks and photos of how he went about fabricating his PV cylinders among ...
