Thanks again guys, and thanks Jay for not buying it yourself. Anybody know who had the engine at NJLS?

WOW! Thanks guys. Whoever was selling it (I didn't even get their names) just had it laying at the end of the table almost buried. I guess there's not much of a chance at getting castings to finish it other than making my own! That brings the question of whether to finish it or leave it as is?

Mystery Loco

Hey guys, picked up a3/4" scale engine chassis at Cabin Fever thinking it might be a Virginia. However, after looking at Vrginia pictures I'm not quite sure what this is as it doesn't look like any of the pictures I've seen. Any help identifying it would be appreciated. The drivers are 4" diameter, ...

Very sorry to hear this. John was a very generous person and his american was the first steamer I pulled the throttle on. He was, as you say, a sort of adopted grandfather and always had a kind word to say. R.I.P. John.

Thanks for all the pictures guys! I didn't know there were so many out there, and hadn't even heard of this engine until I purchased it. Steve, that engine looks great in brass. Alan, thanks for the info on the springing. I agree that this boiler may be too much to repair. The throat sheet has been ...

Hielan Lassie

Hey all, I've just picked a partially built 3.5" gauge LBSC Hielan Lassie. Anyone out there have one? Would like to see pics of a finished engine. Right now the frame needs some work and the boiler needs a lot of work or to be completely scrapped. Once I finish some other projects this should be rel...

If Will can't help you get pictures, I live 15 minutes away and can try to get some for you. I will be there all weekend and should be able to sneak inside the shop for a few minutes.

I'd just like to chime in and say there may be more of us younger guys than you realize. I'm 24 now and have been active in the hobby since I was a whopping 8 years old. I got my dad into the hobby and have built nothing but steam. Down from a butane fired G scale engine to a 7.5" gauge American, an...

Bill, I know of the fellows you are talking about, the Fathers name is John Lukasavage. I was talking to him a little while back about a mogul he had. We actually met at the PLS 60th as well, dunno if you remember talking to a younger guy who said he had built a G scale coal fired engine. That was m...

Sounds reasonable enough to me. If I do lay track I'll probably go with 30' to be safe.
