1 Inch Journal Boxes

Well I think they are one inch scale. They are too small for 1.5 inch. If you know I am wrong, please jump in with corrections. Part of my shop flush and I have no idea of where they came from. There are ten Journal Boxes, but only seven Lids, along with what appears to be a bolster. Price is $37.00...

Free to Good Home

I finally retired and am working my way thru the shop. Cleaning out, Painting and disposing of. These two items have been in the shop for close to ten years. They are headed out the door to a friend that sells scrap for his church work. I thought I would show these to the forum and offer them up for...

Re: Converting a Baldwin 2-4-2 LYN to a Baldwin 2-4-4

Also the tuition is still waved under the Alabama Senior Scholarship Program. As I am only a Stick it together type of welder I have decided to go for train...

Re: Kombrink's American

I will be more than glad to send the STL format file to anyone that would like to use it. It can be scaled to the size you need it. The file is for a 2 inch figure but scales up nicely

Re: Kombrink's American

In trying to add a little class to the American I have found a small print file for an old man. I blew the file up to 1.5 inch to the foot scale.

This is the results. I am building a small crate to put under him and will attach him to the back of the caboose.

Re: Kombrink's American

I mentioned the brakes going out on a hill. I should have stipulated the hill was at the Canton GA. track.

Actually I am very proud of the fact that the American made it to the top twice. Coming down was a rush.

This was the first time out with the full string of cars.

Re: Kombrink's American

So... The cylinder Cocks were a complete success. No more oil and water out the stack on leaving the firing bays. The EE injector works as advertised. After no problems on three runs, it would not pick up on the last run of the day. The injector was hot to the touch and steam was coming out the wate...
