Re: Union Pacific Big Boy in 3/4 Inch Scale

Hello Richard, Thanks for you reply. I have collected all those related Modeltec articles. As you noted very few dimensions. Would you be so kind as to share your engineering drawings with me? Baring that I will have to just scale from the stuff Mr. Fitt saw fit to publish. Please let me know. I am ...

Re: Union Pacific Big Boy 4012 in 1.5"

Hello all:
Does anyone know what is happening with dansmo?
It seems that his build log has stopped
His last activity was on Fri Jan 03, 2020 5:54 pm but I cannot contact or see what that was.
He has not responded to my private message.
Sure would be nice if he would.

I have been doing some research into the Skookum locomotive. I find that several drawings were done by J Harold Geissel who was once a frequent contributor to Model Railroader Magazine. So far I cannot find any biographical information for him. I assume he is no longer with us, however I wonder if s...

My postings to this group do not show up. Also I have recently sent numerous private mailings to Loco112, again no ...
