Re: Help

Locoray,
I visited them not long ago and the owner had stated there were issues with emails not getting through due to a situation as Greg had stated. I had sent them something like 4-5 before they got back to me.

Re: Bobber Caboose

Looking great as always Jack. It was great meeting you at Bitter Creek last weekend. If Jack had an apprentice position I would be standing in line for sure. I got the chance to see some of Jacks work in person last weekend and all I can say is awesome.

Re: AUXILIARY RESIVOIR

I can vouch for the bottle trainman has chosen for his air tank reservoir. It will probably last a good long while before he has any issues with it. Those tanks are mostly run at 80psi in the model aircraft world as that is the operating psi for most air retracts. So him running it at 70psi just may...

Re: Eectric Conversion

Oh forgot to mention a quick search of Ebay shows several of the 24v 250W motors used on there for $17 to $26 each plus about $12 shipping. If you get them from the same seller they might even give you a break on shipping. Just go on there and type in 24v 250W electric motor and all the ones I found...

Re: Eectric Conversion

I know from research I have done that there are places you can go online that have DC motors for conversions at varying prices. I know Plum Cove Studios has some motors plus there are various other sites that either offer conversion services. Roy Stevens from RideTrains has an article on his website...
