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 bake...

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Steve....I see two different style long frame gears. But I have never seen a Hudson with a short frame baker gear.

Re: From the ground up

Check with the supplier of the 7 - 1/4” plans as they may have already made up plans for 7 - 1/2” gauge versions. With British locomotives it should not be difficult to widen the gauge as their construction usually has the cylinders attached to plate frames. This is unlike American locomotives where...

Re: Vincent Astor's railroad

Keith, Thanks for your response. Seems like you and I are the only ones with interest here! Do you have any evidence of the connections? Letters, pictures anything??? I would love to add more to this story. There is some question if the track was ever widened to 7.25" What do you think? Paul Paul; ...

Mr. Holt built several locomotives and acquired others for Mr. Astor and maintained the equipment for him until Mr. Holt’s untimel...
