Re: Watch out for the herd of Camels-0-4-0 Camelback history

Scuttlebutt has it that this Camelback rally may be coming off at Finger Lakes, this August. So, who are we certain is in?

Re: Engine stand

I'm going with the larger wheels on mine as well. I may do the tube extension as suggested earlier. I couldn't live steam without my HF table. I recently saw it on sale for $279. Can't beat it.

Re: My first caboose build

Peter's caboose development has been slow, but continuous. That seems to be the general mode of operation for live steamers. Point is, the addition of the details, even those as large as ladders and hand rails, have made the little bobber. It's so much more interesting with the extra pieces. I'd add...

Great thread about a much beloved locomotive and other iterations of the Camelback design. I do believe a Camelback rally is called for, and my wife and I will certainly try to make it to FLLS for such an event. Ed Archer, thank you for keeping the locomotive alive!
