Re: C&O Live Steam

Rob Gardner - have you made any progress with your web page proposal?

Andy, Thanks for the offer but I've already decided to live with the LE 10" drivers and have already machined them. They are larger then the scaled C&O by either .14" or .44" depending on whether I assume 1.55"/ft or 1.60"/ft. Also I'm going to live with the LE C-C driver distance of 10.5". What is ...

Re: Driver and axle assembly

I don't feel secure in the use of a form of glue to attach 10 in drivers to a 15/16 in. axle.
