Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Bill. Look at my previous post, read once then repeat. Keith, if you punch up Richard Leonard's NYC web site, look at the 5243 and then the 5300. The Michigan Central engines actually had two styles of the flat baker frame. One we will call slab side and the other had an opening similar to the baker...

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Check the baker bracket on a rebuilt 5200 class engine. Now go to a 8200 class engine. Finally look at the 5344. See any difference?

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Very nice work. One thing to take note of. The Baker gear on this engine was the style they used for the Michigan Central engines. The Baker for the Hudson you want is what I think they call the short frame. When the Hudsons were changed over from the Walschearts they used a long frame Baker gear. T...

Moving Image Research Collection

Not sure if this was posted here before. Type this into the computer and for the search punch in "steam locomotives". Some live steam including the Hild Pacific at Lindhearst and outtakes from what seems to be the locomotive from the the San Francisco Exposition? Many interesting old films of railro...

All my stuff is going to geocache. I thought this was the way to go after seeing all of those guys looking for "the BIG W".

Re: 4-4-0 Baldwin Information Needed

There is a 3/4" live steam model of the Countess of Duffern at the Komoka Museum. The last time I saw it, it was sitting in the corner of an old tin barn on a shelf. If was donated (left) to the museum by a local. I don't think they even took his name down. I have no idea if it came with any plans o...

Re: Rebuilding the Birch 3/4" NYC Pacific

Was there a need to replace the rods? Sometimes it is a shame to change a "classic" engine to something newer. I do realize that as the owner, you paid the bill so you can do as you wish. Just a thought.
