Several of the 20 ton Shay castings can be used to build the Harris Shay.

Re: Wood Refrigerator car ladders

Exactly what I want. However the car I am building is 2 1/2" scale.

Re: Wood Refrigerator car ladders

RGS had them...…The picture I have looks like two runners with pipe rungs using straps to hold each rung.

Wood Refrigerator car ladders

Does anyone have drawings or photos of the ladders used on narrow gauge reefers?
I would like to model them but would like more info on their construction and mounting.

Thanks

Glen
It is basically 3 guys now. Bill Piggot ( owns the RR and one of the Cagney's ), Chris Arnold (owns the other Cagney and the Herschell ) and Grady Smith ( owns a 15" Clishay ). There are also some sons involved now. Could be others, it has been several years since I last visited.

JR when you get it running you need to take it to Belpre, OHIO on the Bluebird & Western RR. They host a fall meet in Oct. and May.
They have two Cagney's and a Herschell-Spillman. When I had my Mogul I ran it on this RR.

Re: Comments on train unloading facilities

Here is the transfer table I have on my RR. Made from a 3 Ton hydraulic lift table mounted on a carriage with rollers to align loading/unloading vehicles. It will go down to 18" and rise to 6 ft.

Re: injector problem

Don't forget the check valve on the boiler. I had similar problems that turned out to be a stuck check valve at the boiler.
