Chris, where in Germany are you? I frequently go to Leipzig for work as I do flying for DHL, would love to see your work up close. Also, I know you’ve mentioned it before, the way you mount the drivers to the axles, what’s that called?

Hi Guys,

some news on our J,we finished the slide ways and were able to put it on the Cylinder, everthing fits well.
The crosshead is just a Dummy to show the dimensions of the parts...dont forget its just 5"Gauge.
I cant wait to be in front of the prototyp. Just 68 Days...
