Re: WTB Clippard MJQC-B4B4

I am using 7/8" dia cylinders on 2 1/2" scale trucks, and they really don't need a lot of air. The system can pressurize very quickly. I am thinking I have 8 braking trucks plus a c...

Re: WTB Clippard MJQC-B4B4

Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line

A few more general pictures of the day, showing good times and good friends. I had to leave before Larry got out on the main, someone else may have a picture or two of that.

All in all a great day and I feel honored to witness the birth of a new railroad.

Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line
