Worlds tiniest V12 Engine??

I don't usually post here in the IC forums, I am usually over on the Live Steam forums, but a friend of mine sent this to me and I thought I would pass it along. It looks like it is in spanish, but I just look at the pictures ;-)

Re: Rail Systems?

Forgive me if this has been hashed over already. Does anyone know if they are in business anymore? Their website only shows a email. I also noticed their ads were gone from Discoverlivesteam.com It seem like I had seen something about them going out of business a while nack. But I can't remember......

Re: What to use for boiler lagging and cladding

Hey Doug. Hope all is good. When I had the Atlantic, I had used the sheet FiberFrax as well. When I was researching FiberFrax, I thought I ran across something they made that was about like what you are talking about. What about the stuff they use to line fire pans in oil burners? Fred I have been w...

Re: Disney's Live Steam RR
