Re: 2.5" scale "Fulton" 4-4-0 castings now available from Allen Models

Re: Drawing advice

Agree there are not enough people in the hobby. Makes designers who have produced incredible designs such as Don Young, Jim Krieder, Kozo Hiroaka all the more remarkable, just to name a few.

Re: LE 1” Scale Drivers

I don't need them, but I have to say, I appreciate when people selling items take the care to make it obvious what important dimensions are.
