Re: Covid Creations

I will see what I can do with the I phone. The computer is hanging on the wall with a nail through it.

Re: Covid Creations

Don't know what happened. Looked ok on this end and they are the right way around when you click on them. Oh well, the computer might have a virus!

Re: Tuscon Red Paint

Krylon Burgundy would be my choice. They have a few other maroon style colours you could look at which might be more to your liking. I tend to use Krylon for both live steam and HO and really like the results.

Re: More home movies 1970's Clint Ensworth, etc

Used to always see Bob Christman and his wife at the Finger Lakes meets in the 1980's. He had a picture book of how he changed the engine from a gas driven model to a live steamer.
