Re: New Project GE 23T Boxcab in 1.5" scale.

The chassis is now welded and one piece. Now the down side, I threw out my back at work today and cannot work on the chassis :( . But it is ready for me to move on in the build when I am able to.

Re: New Project GE 23T Boxcab in 1.5" scale.

Here are a few pics of the axle and journal dry fittings. Chassis scheduled to be welded up after work tomorrow. Think I had the journals upside down in the pics but nothing is permanent, lol.

Re: Bitter Creek President's Day Meet

Awesome pictures as always Mike. The one of me and my daughter is awesome. That is the first time she has ever rode with me on a tender while I was firing a loco. Incidentally that was also the longest I have ever run 41, lol. Well tried to upload some pics but wouldn't take from the phone. Will try...

Re: New Project GE 23T Boxcab in 1.5" scale.

Received the next 2 packages of parts from Chris Friday while I was playing trains at the BCWRR presidents run weekend. Got in the axles, wheels, sprockets, journals, bearings, gear box assembly, and cab doors. Can't wait to get the chassis on its wheels!

Here are some pics of where today has gotten me. Started this morning and after a few glitches on my end getting used to the new equipment things seemed to have turned out pretty good for my first project.

Re: New Project GE 23T Boxcab in 1.5" scale.

Just picked up my new drill press so once assembled I can begin rolling at a more steady pace. No more scheduling conflicts or work issues to slow me down :).

Got some drilling done today on the chassis side plates. Had to sort out some issues with the drill press at my dad's and get a proper X/Y vise for the press. Hoping this week to get a floor model press of my own so I can do this stuff at home when time allows rather than waiting for a day when me a...

Quick update from a long dormant thread. I ordered yesterday the bits to take the chassis to a rolling awaiting electronics stage. Have been crazy busy with work that has kept me away from home for all but the holidays themselves. Also why I have missed a good many meets in that time. So in a few we...

Thanks Mike. Hoping to get some of the detailing and building practice I will be needing for my future steam project. Will be great for the wife and kids too.
