Jeff Smith--Re: your site.
I found your site is OK, if you just put in Branchlineproducts.com I had it with the "Catalog page" included with the full name.
Hey. What can I say. I`m a techno-dinosaur.

Re: Old-style brake wheel in 1/8th scale

Berne Ketchum old style brake wheel. I think pretty much they were made by Nelson Grey years ago. I have used what I had and Really like them for older model cars. They were black plastic. Don`t remember the scale (one inch??) I don`t care, I like them for 1-1/2 " cars and wish I had more. :-( chooch

Jeff Smith--Branchline.
To bad you didn`t add your whole website. Now I have to write that I just tried your site to post it--bookmarked quite a while ago and it does not work.

Re: Erskine Tramway

To Mike. That sounds interesting, not so much work as mixing mortar. Thanks, chooch The stuff I use is 'Titebond' brand 'Retaining Wall Adhesive'. It comes in caulking gun style tubes, I get it downtown. After it's set up, it doesn't come apart. I'm sure you could 'glue' your block wall together wit...

Re: Turntable design

Years ago I saw several old (real) gas station auto lifts used for turntables. Just a mention as I have not seen it mentioned here.

Great turntable article. Very interesting, informative and good ideas.
Thank you all. chooch

Re: Mountain car co / Titan trains

From all I have seen and read, been told personally about Titan Trains recently, and that they are now being advertised on Discoverlivesteam. com (a Big plus), I would not hesitate to order from Titan Trains myself. Titan is also listed on the ( I think it`s)`thetraintrader.com.

Re: For those that have been following my builds

I`ll toast a `Maxwell House` to your very-Very nice looking train. Steam loco and `Passenger` cars fit together quite well.
Good to see Passenger cars being built for a change. Inspired.
