Re: What Engine Is This

It's entirely plausible that the air pumps were on the smokebox due to clearance issues... Tunnels, bridges, etc... Just a thought.

Re: Older Pacific Electric model

I am responding based on the assumption that the trucks are exactly as pictured. So Truck #1 has the gearing on the engineer's side rail, whereas Truck #2 has the gearing on the Fireman's Side rail. This would result in an opposite rotation if the motors were wired up red/red between the two trucks....

Re: Pacific Fruit Express Reefer Kits - 1½" & 1" Scale

Now, that's cool. I can't wait to get a basic kit. Will there be an alternate price for not including a MDF skin?

FS: 1” scale passenger car

Hi all, I've decided it is time to part with my 1" Scale passenger car. As I understand it, this is the prototype for the Riding Railkits line. The reason for being so short is that the designers/builders wanted to run it on their property's railroad which had small radius curves, so they had to sho...

Then the ONE night that I ran at nighttime (St Croix) I noticed that as I incremented the potentiometer for the throttle past ~35-40%, I was seeing a red glow coming from the circuit board.

When I worked for Rock Island Arsenal, I worked with VTLs... Pretty cool stuff. We machined parts for the M198/M119 Howitzers on these. The tooling was massive. We had to use the overhead cranes to load the tooling. Sometimes I wonder if I should've stayed. Then I wouldn't be where I am today withou...
