Re: 85th Anniversary Meet at Montreal - Reminder

This was one of the neatest things I saw - a chassis on a carrier -

Re: 85th Anniversary Meet at Montreal - Reminder

Enough of me. Any idea what historic engines are going to be there? I will have my Ralph Francis built 3 1/2" gauge Atlantic there. It's still up in the air if I will be ready to fire it up. I am still at the shop working on it. Notice I didn't say 3/4" scale - it is more like a 1" scale locomotive...

Re: water glasses

Dan, 'de-zincification' takes years, maybe decades. I have seen it, but after 20 years plus.
Many locomotives made in the 50's and 60's had brass fittings in the water glass that lasted a good long time.

Re: Don Ritchie 3/4" scale trucks?

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. There are no tolls for thee… head west on the 401 through Ontario. It changes the designation to Autoroute 20 when you cross into Q...
