Re: Fire watch, solid fuel run at Train Mountain?

I dunno...I only watched the first couple passes, and it looked to me like perhaps they were sanding the flues...

Re: EMD F7 in SCALE

I would love to read more regarding the mechanicals and control system when you get around to it BDD. I fully understand if further updates aren't a priority for you, just wanted to let you know I (and I'm sure others) haven't lost interest in your build thread.

Re: Diesel-Electric Models

Hello Dan, what scale are those locomotives built to?

I've seen a few locomotives from Austrailia at Train Mountain, and they were a fair bit larger than e 1:7.5 and 1:8 locomotives typical in North America for use on 7.25" and 7.5" gauge track. You could even sit in the cab on some of them.

Re: Diesel-Electric Models

A true scale 567 or 645 (2-stroke, running on diesel) might be a stretch, but a multi-cylinder diesel should be doable...there are a few (and I mean a few) videos of small scale compression ignition working diesel engines (running on diesel, not nitromethane, and no gloplugs) on youtube. It wouldn't...

Re: Ridge Live Steamers Card Order

My guess is that the '2' refers to the number of events...on 2 separate weekends a card order session will be held. That would be the difference between "2-card order" and "2 card order" Hyphens are important. Imagine what your spouse would think of "extra-marital sex" vs "extra marital sex". Steve...
