James, What particular prints are you looking for. I am currently bulding one, and have many of the prints and what I dont have I have access to. I as well as Ed Yungling have re-drawn many of them to 1.593 scale.Let me know if I can help.

Hi VO4454
Thank you for the reply. I'm just getting started on collecting info on the Daylight. I was going to build in 1.6 but 1.593 is fine with me. I will need anything that you and Ed can help me with. I was just about ready to call Ed and talk to him about what he had for prints. Let me know what it would cost for the prints and if you have any casting also for sell.

Thank you
James

Hello James. Castings we have on hand or have the molds for are, Drivers ,pilot coupler pocket, boiler checks ,crossheads, westinghouse cross compound air pumps, buckeye tender trucks. journal box lids, tender truck brake cylinders, trailing truck brake cylinders, driver axle boxes ,SP style firebox door. I am working on SP style handrail stantions right now and Robert Williams has several detail part molds in progress. He has had cast the trailing truck cellar retaining dogs and the latern holder hook for the rear of tenders. He has the sister engine to mine. No bolster casting yet for the buckeyes .however at this point I am using a fabbed bolster which is working just fine Here are some pics of the castings. PM me with your phone number , I will do the same.

That is one sweet engine. I know another gentleman of the Illinois Live Steamers is building one as well. Very cool... and even better once painted orange, red and black.

I should mention that Ed Yungling's GS-4 puts mine to shame.

I guess I didn't mention that you can get GS-4 blueprints from Roger Goldmann at this link http://www.livesteamlocomotives.com/dra ... _4-8-4.htm. Here's some on the tender http://www.livesteamlocomotives.com/dra ... enders.htm

I also got some blueprints from the California State Museum http://www.csrmf.org/
