Viton decomposition.

... This stuff will decompose to liberate hydrofluric acid which is horrific stuff. .. Kody I think (hope!) that you will find that Viton will indeed decompose, but at temperatures above what you will find in cylinders. http://www.rtvanderbilt.com/documents/MSDS/US/vit007a.pdf is an mdf sheet. It s...

CPR 2-8-0

That Canadian Pacific 2-8-0 is neat! Yeah, that is Moe and his locomotive works. I have met him briefly a couple of times; he builds custom locomotives for people. They seem to work well; if I was in the market for a new large scale locomotive, I'd check him out. (no business interest; just he seem...

Canadian vs US electricity.

Yes, there is 110 in the steaming bays BUT it is U.S. 110 rather than Canadian 110 so be sure to bring your converter. :D Errol Groff Is there a difference? Do they have 110? David Yeah, it's metric 110 up here. I have to bring a converter; I have to do this when travelling (I go "south" a few time...

Waushakum Steaming bays - 110v power?

Hi all; Question - does the WLS have 110v power in the steaming bays? I pulled my 3-1/2" gauge SNCF141R off of its stand in the living room (my wifes' idea - bless her) and made sure all worked as planned. The locomotive did, but I had to use a 110v "HO-scale" transformer for my blower power supply;...

Metric and injectors.

I wonder if there isn't also an element of tradition in the combined American and Metric dimensions. Sellars made their first injectors under license from Giffard in France. Even the Sellars nomenclature for sizing represented Metric dimensions. As an example, a Sellars 6N had a combining tube wher...
