Re: Wooden refrigerator car

caboose.jpg Like this? I have several sources, including the hobby shop (1/4" x 1/16" basswood) and several online retailers sell basswood stripwood as well. Beveling the edges is a whole nother story... Yes, each strip on that hack has beveled edges. This is a 1" Caboose. I guess I'm letting the c...

Russell Stewart of Georgetown PA purchased all of the LE small scales stuff, then promptly locked it all up. I may have a almost set of 2-6-0 (really a 0-6-0 set, you just add a front truck). Let me look.
Rumor on the street is that it was repo'd by the bank, but who knows.

Re: Allen Models - running boards back in stock

Re: Arborway, T.T. and NW Closed

Check out https://woodsvalleyfarm.com/ for more information. Wow, that IS a spectacular place! No, I will not be asking the price but I will continue working on a national railway preservation society with an endowment to purchase and preserve such things. As I said on a post on another forum 'what...

Re: Arborway, T.T. and NW Closed

So is there more specific information about the sale and future disposition of this great railroad? As an earlier post asked: Is there any idea yet if it might be reconfigured into a non-profit club or museum (at the same location or another)? No. The ATT&NW already had a not-for-profit "friends of...

Re: Show of Interest - Walschaerts Links - 1" Scale

I guess most of you didn't get my point. How about the old school way ROTARY TABLE ! With all due respect, this thread was started with the intent of asking others to see if they wanted to get in on this. If you're not interested in obtaining a set, and just want to troll - I am going to ask you to...
