We sure got a good dump! Haven't seen that much snow in town in a while.

The perfect Christmas gift! I am selling my custom built 2.5" scale 7.5" gauge electric speeder. It is bigger and taller than a rail rider supply speeder and much more powerful. It seats one adult and one child or two teenagers or three 7 - 10 year olds. It features dual deep cycle marine batteries,...

Re: Gene Allen's model engines

The single-cam factory engine is now in my possession thanks to the generosity of Gene's son and daughter in law. It is a beautiful model that I will cherish always.

Re: 2.5" scale "Fulton" 4-4-0 castings now available from Allen Models

How close is this Fulton design to the Eureka of Dan Markoff? According to Curtis Ferrington, although the same 8-18 series, the Eureka, Sonoma etc. were larger and heavier than the engines made from plan #9 like these. Although I am sure these can be adapted to produce a reasonable looking facsimi...

Re: Fire to crown sheet distance

For Marty Burners / Locoparts / Solarflo burners, they need as much head room as you can give them, put the manifold down at the mug ring. The commercial burners are designed for 18" of headroom for complete combustion, but they obviously do work in our locomotives regardless. Slot and hole burners ...

Re: 2.5" scale "Fulton" 4-4-0 castings now available from Allen Models

Good looking engine and congrats on making it available again. Questions: would you cast the drivers out of ductile iron? Better for off road excursions... Second: any time frame on drawings? Good work! Mountaineer. Allen Models only does grey / cast iron at the moment. For heavy running on steel t...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

One other interesting thing. I see a lot of requests here for a 250psig version. Since we are not making our own bourdon tubes here that is a lot harder. It seems virtually no one out there makes a gauge in that range as a starting point to go off of. So the options are 160psig, 200, and 300. If th...
