Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

So the valve pilot was an engineer nanny.... No..it was an engineer spy. It was used so the Road Foreman could check on the engineer’s use of cut off so they could yell at him for wasting coal. While a different form...today they have “event recorders.” And for the same purpose...to spy on what the...

Re: Home movies, Harry Herder's track and PVLS

No Rob, no Little Engines castings. For one thing it isn’t 1” scale. It is 3 - 1/2” gauge, but when it was built Lewis Bullock didn’t live near any 4 - 3/4” gauge tracks. So he built it to 7/8” scale to run on 3 - 1/2” gauge tracks! Mr. Bullock always made all of his own patterns and to his own desi...

The Lehigh Valley 2095 sits patiently in my shop. It has gotten a bit too heavy for Ginny and me to load and unload anymore.
I would need some strong young help to move it anymore.

Not Bill Morewood’s Raritan. Mr. Morewood’s engine was finished back in the 1960’s long before this video was taken.

Still...a great video!

That is an 18” gauge Cagney gasoline powered locomotive. They were built in New York State and were always internal combustion powered.

Re: First steam locomotive build-3/4" scale Raritan

A suggestion.....build the tender first. It will give you experience and you won’t be risking more expensive castings. And more importantly when you get the locomotive ready to test you will already have a tender that includes a pump to test the boiler!
