Re: New Wagon Top Boiler for an Allen Ten Wheeler

Would this be able to fit an Allen 2-8-0?

Re: Allen Models needs votes.

Personally, I would rather see an Allen 2-8-2 or a heavier 2-8-0. But between the 2, short framed 4-4-0 is my vote

Re: Allen Models needs votes.

Steve, I would vote 2 however I would really like to see a 1901-1910 4-4-0 more. Something like ma&pa #6 or PRR 1223. I can't figure out how to post pictures on here but when I figure it out I will. But I think taking the current 4-4-0 and shortening it would look great as it is

Re: ALCO Type E Power Reverse

Also important to note with many of the type E's and G's, that the linkage was mounted on the inside, not the outside like the bigger type H's. Granted I'm sure this doesn't apply to all, but something to keep in mind

Re: ALCO Type E Power Reverse

The ma&pa heavy 2-8-0 that I plan to build in 1.6 had an ALCO type E on it. Not quite there yet, but I am definitely keeping an eye on this.

Re: Allen Models 2-8-0 water jet Consolidation Frames

Ahhhh shame this is just coming out now. Machining a laser cut frame for the 2-8-0 as we speak. Oh well, happy to see water jet available. Let me know what other parts will be available in the future. Until then I will be making chips

Re: Help with New Build Specs...

10 bucks it's EBT 17. Would be a neat engine to see. Might not be the best project for a first time builder, but I do not want to discourage you.

Re: Interview with John Gray

Very cool! The challenger is one of the finest examples of model engineering in the world. Can't wait to see the rest which I'm sure will be up to the same standard and then some
