Re: Boiler Check Valve Manufacturer?

BTW, in the 1:1 world, was there a valve inline with the boiler check valve? Most locos (maybe all) had a shutoff valve either incorporated in the check valve or between the check valve and the boiler.

Re: Older Pacific Electric model

I am responding based on the assumption that the trucks are exactly as pictured. So Truck #1 has the gearing on the engineer's side rail, whereas Truck #2 has the gearing on the Fireman's Side rail. This would result in an opposite rotation if the motors were wired up red/red between the two trucks....

Re: Pacific Fruit Express Reefer Kits - 1½" & 1" Scale

Now, that's cool. I can't wait to get a basic kit. Will there be an alternate price for not including a MDF skin?

FS: 1” scale passenger car

Hi all, I've decided it is time to part with my 1" Scale passenger car. As I understand it, this is the prototype for the Riding Railkits line. The reason for being so short is that the designers/builders wanted to run it on their property's railroad which had small radius curves, so they had to sho...

Then the ONE night that I ran at nighttime (St Croix) I noticed that as I incremented the potentiometer for the throttle past ~35-40%, I was seeing a red glow coming from the circuit board. Come to find out, the error lig...
