Re: Alcalde & Coalfield High Line

Same thing with a black locomotive. Put a little white in the black paint and it lightens it up little bit. It's still black but detail in the shadows can be seen better.

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Jack, you've made the parts for this bell in 3/4" scale. So does shrinkage change anything when they are used as patterns for investment casting?

Re: Mercer Safety Valves

I have ordered multiple things from him also and never had a problem. He owes me a pair of trucks but it looks like he has a few fires to put out first. I'm not worried. They will be pretty when they get here, the anticipation is at least half the fun.

Re: 2019 Big Boy schedule

It is one beautiful locomotive !!!! I'm sure it looks better than when it came from Alco. And that double header was something to see, never thought it would happen.

Re: Choosing the right drawing

EVGEN, My take on "style" is this. To use the example of the front engine made up of several castings vs one that is one casting.
