Re: Rebuilding the Birch 3/4" NYC Pacific

Was there a need to replace the rods? Sometimes it is a shame to change a "classic" engine to something newer. I do realize that as the owner, you paid the bill so you can do as you wish. Just a thought. I was about to write a similar post when I saw Steve’s. Please bear in mind that you have an hi...

Re: The Home Machinist's 3/4" Scale Locomotive Roster

Re: Bill Yoder-the 3/4-inch audit guy

Jonathan Leiby is the correct spelling. that loco is not Harold's..it never had a cab in any of the pictures or 'real life' encounters that I saw. Harold had a cab on it when he visited the NJLS many years ago. It had no running boards and no cab roof, but it did have a cab. However....that is not ...

Re: Engine Tear down-Boiler removal-7 1/4 George the Vth

Marty,
You may remember Pierre “Pete” Maurer at the NJLS many years ago. Pete at different times owned a Geo. the 5th and a Royal Scot.....both built by Bassett-Locke in the 1930’s. Both had copper boilers.

Amazing to see a riveted boiler that lasted 85 years...but I bet the legs are completely solid with
rust
and debris.
I am curious are you sure the boiler is steel? (Which rusts) The reason I ask is I have seen other Bassett-Lowke George the Vth locomotives and they all had copper boilers.

Isn’t Lombard # 70 at Clark’s Trading Post also operable anymore? It was totally restored not many years ago.

Re: Plastic Ties for 3.5" gauge?

Hudson 006.JPG Actually there is still a LOT of interest in 3 - 1/2” gauge in the Northeast. The last few meets I have attended have seen more activity on the elevated tracks than on the ground level track! My wife and I live a five hour drive from our club. We can pack and locomotive, tender, ridi...

Re: Running a live steamer "1930s style"

I could be wrong, but I am pretty sure that is “the” Wee Angus.
A recent hospital visit prevented me taking a locomotive....this time. I will be back however.

Re: WTB Miniature Locomotive Magazines

The last issue of The Miniature Locomotive was Nov/Dec 1954. The last issue of The Modelmaker was June 1940 to the best of my knowledge. I had all of the Miniature Locomotive magazines bound into a hard cover book. After the Miniature Locomotive magazine expired it was followed by The North American...
