Many locomotives made in the 50's and 60's had brass fittings in the water glass that lasted a good long time.

I am trying to get it back together with a new boiler. I will bring it with me whether or not it's running.

Re: 85th Anniversary Meet at Montreal - Reminder

I will be driving over from Michigan. Are there any toll roads to watch out for in Quebec, like the 407 in Ontario? Hi Marty, Great to hear you are coming to our Meet.

It looks like I will be there on Friday and Saturday.

Re: Policy Changes at Ridge Locomotive Works

Well, Brian, I will give an estimate, but this just an approximation.
What adds to the cost is when the customer adds things, like mounting the water glass, or more washouts.
Crating and shipping have always been additional.
