Re: Greetings from the newbie in West TN

The Tasha is no longer offered by the current owners of RMI, why I do not know. The drawings I made just for fun using the documents that two builders in my steam club used to build two separate locomotives. These are both still running at the club. Do you believe everything these guys write? A quic...

Re: 3/4" scale Juliet and CNO&TP Ms-4

Hello out there,
Would anyone care to share drawings for the Hodges trailing truck?
I have the stuff William Fitt published, however I wonder if there might be something more detailed.
Right now I will need to scale a lot of the piece parts from Fitt's assembly drawings.

Thanks
Rich

Re: Building the Southern Railway PS-4 Frame

Were did you find the drawing for the "brake fulcrum" I cannot find it on any of my drawing sheets from Fitt's booklet.

Re: Building the Southern Railway PS-4 Frame

Hello Charles, Have you an update to report since Sept 2011? Also I am looking to find more drawings to fill in all the gaps in William Fitt's booklet starting with the steam cylinder / smoke box saddle for example. That booklet is only a tantalizing insight into what might be available somewhere.. ...

Re: Southern Railroad PS-4 Pacific Design Discussion

Hello out there, I see that this thread has been inactive for quite some time. Has it perhaps been continued under another title? Perhaps someone can give me an update.

Re: SMOKEBOX THROTTLE

Well I located the article on the 4 aces smoke box throttle. No mention of the American Throttle Company, and true to form no dimensions of the valve assembly that Roy Johnston built for his model.
