Re: Electric drive locomotives

I'm going to guess at this, but given what is written in their advertisement, I'd say it will require constant cooling and may eventually fail. Something designed for heavy use in a confined space is a 24 volt motor from an electric wheelchair. Not only do they have the power, they're designed to wo...

Re: Green Bay Wi National Railroad museum

There is a very old live steamer set in a garden outside the building, a gorgeous 4-4-0 in 1/8th scale in the lobby, a grand scale "sort of" Hudson in the museum store being used as a display, and a builders model of the Aerotrain in the museum itself.

Re: FINGER LAKES LIVE STEAMERS 50TH ANNAVERSY MEET

Glad to hear you are well, Dave. I did hear your named mentioned several times around the steaming bays and with particular reference to the Mercer version of the Reading A5a Camelbacks. You and the K4s were both missed. Stay well and we hope to see you around.

Re: Thank you FLLS!!

I've just sent an email to Roger, concerning the excellent planning and support around this meet. Not only were the meals generous and delicious, the provision of cases of ice water around the area was a stroke of genius, rather than a stroke from heat! The meet was superb on every level, and lots o...
