Re: Don Ritchie 3/4" scale trucks?

I'm trying to get my 3/4" Atlantic running to bring with me.

What adds to the cost is when the customer adds things, like mounting the water glass, or more washouts.
Crating and shipping have always been additional.

Re: Real Trains Plymouth and Riding Car Modifications

I have one of the Tom Artzberger/Hartford Shops electric Plymouths. My grandkids love it! My nephew, a mechanical engineer, put it together as a student project. I haven't got around to adding lights yet, but I did buy a Plymouth RoadRunner horn for it!

Re: Policy Changes at Ridge Locomotive Works

Fluctuating steel prices driving you nuts? Btw, Is there any 2.5" scale K27's boilers coming up at your place? Mountaineer. I built a 2.5" scale K-27 boiler 6 or 7 years ago. I had an extra set of parts formed at that time - they are still sitting on the shelf. I've had a number of inquiries, but n...

Three points I'd like to make: 1. ...
