Re: 3" scale D&RG inspired boxcar

Hi Mike
The car is lookin' good. You and your dad do very impressive work. I like your " selective compression" approach to design. Whose turnbuckles did you use and what size are they? Tell us about your framing lumber. I look foreword to double heading with you someday.

Whistle

Some questions around the track about how to modulate a steam whistle like the full size locos. Most of our models seem to be on or off. Is it the whistle or the valve? If the valve can it be modified? Any ideas?

Re: New year, new project...restoring a 'Wendy'

Looking good Mike. What is/will you use for coal grate material? CRS, HRS, stainless? Hope to double head with you at Bitter Creek when you are done.

Re: Engine House Photos

WOW Jack, what a transformation from that pile of dusty stuff I saw in your shop the other day. I feel like I can walk right up to the caboose and climb aboard. Thanks again for the visit.

Thanks for the compliment, yes the loco is mine. I think you could build a C-16 in any scale if you can find a few castings to use. You just need to be creative, but that's what so many of us find fun about the hobby.

Re: Looking for info

Hi Patrik Go to Sunday December 20 2009 on page 25. A Grand Day Out posted by jbodenmann. Is that the one your looking for? The loco is a C-16 based on Otto Mears Silverton RR Co. #100. Mostly scratch built around a few castings as are the cars. The track is a loop around My house, about 300 feet or...
