Re: Assistance needed on steam engine sources

I just went to the Reeves web site, and I think (almost positive) its a Reeves Commander. beautiful engine, but if I built it my wife would not let me put it on the hearth in the family room, and thats all I planned to do with it when I bought it.

Take a look at it...its a beautiful engine.

Re: Conway Locomotive castings and drawings

They look like the Conway 2-1/2" scale C-19 castings. I built one of these but the castings you have look a whole lot better than the ones I had to work with.

Re: Wanted: drawing for D&RG stock car

I am surprised that no one mentioned this, but if you want the ultimate guide and info on building a D&RGW stock car, there is a book called "Taking StocK".

Re: Good supplier of water gauge glass? 1/2" O.D

You can also get 1/2" red line pyrex from Locoparts. We do not cut it, you have to need the specific lengths that we stock for our gauge glass assys. We have 2-7/8", 1-1/2" 4"/ 5". and 6" lengths. Call us at 757-255-2815. This way you are also directly supporting your steam loco vendors.
