Re: New; "Narrow Gauge Exchange", the NG info forum

Re: Boiler Construction Questions

I sure hope the Swanton guys had that original boiler 3D scanned for future reference and projects. Document all work on historic equipment.

Re: Air Compressor Governor needed

Tom, what is your Boiler pressure. Are you going to use a 3", or a 3 3/4" single pump? What pressure will it pump against your Boiler pressure?
What reservoir and brake line pressures were you wanting to use?

Re: Winton Westinghouse 9 1/2" Air Compressor

Dave Braun at Mammoth Locomotive Works has those pumps. I'm very interested in how your project goes, as I'm considering one of the larger scale Winton pumps, so I'd like to follow your progress closely. Call Mammoth, see what he can help you with, and I'm interested in his responses.
