Re: Southern Pacific P-4

Looks like that is from SP's locomotive diagram book, something I am trying to acquire for myself.

Re: Southern Pacific P-4

I am a member of the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society and have contacted them to see if I can come with some figures for the P-4. A friend who may have the information is on vacation and will see what he can find when he returns; his return date is open ended so it may be awhile.

Re: Southern Pacific P-4

The following information is not for a P class but it may help with the weights. In Church's book "The 4300 4-8-2's" there is a good ( sort of ) photo of the data on the cab of MT-3 4341. This photo shows the b as B 60 which is below the driver weight as mentioned earlier. The 4341 is a larger locom...

Re: Southern Pacific P-4

The letters "SF" indicate that the locomotive is Superheated and equipped with a Feedwater heater, The SP did not list the TE on the cab but did did list the weight on drivers . If no feed water heater there will only be the S if superheated - most all were. The cab layout should look about like thi...

Pickett No. 33 E, 6" ruler

Does anyone out there have a spare Pickett No. 33 E , 6" ruler I could purchase ? On one side it has inches in tenth's and opposite that tenth's divided into hundredth's. On the back side it lists decimal equivalents for inch fractions, 1/8, 5/16 etc. Gary Bonine

Re: Model T&P 2-10-4 and book

Thanks for the information. Just a couple of hours ago, via telephone, the guy I talked with thought it had ended up in British Columbia. Wonder if there is more than one out there ? The photograph I saw pretty much had the T&P front end completed ( feed water heater, air pump shields etc ).

Re: Model T&P 2-10-4 and book

Marty, thanks.
Over a period of 3 - 4 months the latter part of last year I e-mailed and called Railroad Supply a number of times. There was never a response.

Model T&P 2-10-4 and book

A few years ago I ran across a photo of a 1.5" (1.6" ?) scale T&P 2-10-4. I have always wondered where this engine went and what is its current status. I would love to this model run; I used to see the full size ones all the time in my younger days. Also, does anyone have a spare copy of "Engineerin...

Re: Steamed Hams

A few years back there was a photo of a 1.5" ( 1.6") scale model of a Texas and Pacific 2-10-4, this locomotive seems to have disappeared . Does anyone know the current status of this locomotive ? Also, does anyone have a spare copy of "Engineering Handbook for Recreational Railroaders" by Nick Edwa...

Re: GS-1, finishing up the hard way

Great help from everyone - thanks. Seems like I did see something along this line ( Live Steam & Outdoor Railroading ? ) in the past. Have some back issues stored, will dig them out to see what I can find with the May/June issue specifically in mind. Gary

Re: GS-1, finishing up the hard way

Thanks much for the information. I have done some work hear and there with AutoCad and FeatureCam. I have had access to a CNC mill and it looks like I could do a number of basic shapes for the cylinder with it. Again, thanks for the help; hope I get to see your GS-1 in person someday. Gary
