Re: Your RR grading methods??

Are the wood forms removed ? Seems like a ton of extra work building all those wood forms then leaving them under the actual track.

Re: Climax #38 -- 7-1/2" gauge, 1-1/2" scale

Id think one of the Small size EE injectors would be great for that. That way you can leave it on longer without worrying about dropping boiler pressure.

Re: Stainless steel boiler/exchanger?

Harold, thanks.

So it's more a cost issue than a problem with the actual monel material. It also seem the heat conductivity value for monel is much much lower than Copper and somewhat lower than carbon steel. Is the price of duplex SS that much more affordable ?

Re: Stainless steel boiler/exchanger?

My question was more a hypothetical, just curious how they would work. Not going to suggest going out and buying it. the average guy can't afford a 7-8k boiler for a mikado either...
