Re: BETTENDORF TRUCK ORDERS

Got mine, they're really nice. 3 pr in two priority mail boxes, coast-to-coast in 2 days. Like most things in this hobby, they are worth the wait. Thanks Dave.

Re: BETTENDORF TRUCK ORDERS

Dave can you post here when the truck orders have all been shipped? That way we'll know if ours should have arrived without having to keep asking. We're just anxious because we have projects to put them under. Thank you too for understanding.

Re: Painting graphics on plywood - advice

Stencil brushes are a few bucks at Hobby Lobby. A rattle can might spray a bit heavy for a stencil. This is the way I would go. Use a stencil brush. If you've never used one before, you hold the brush perpendicular to both your palette and the paint source. Dab it into the paint source with a tappi...

Re: What is this?

Whoops, believe that is a KC not a KD - that's what I get for posting in the middle of the night. A little research indicates the "C" is for combined and the "D" is for detached, referring to the triple valve and reservoir.

Re: What is this?

Westinghouse type KD brake cylinder is my take. The thing on the end of the reservoir would be the attached triple valve.

Re: DianneB Passing

I didn't want to read this, Barry. I'd hoped to meet Dianne sometime at the St Croix, I'm equally at fault for never making it to MLS (yet). When reading her interests you've listed, I know I've missed some conversations that would have been very enjoyable. Condolences to all of you who knew her well.

Re: Around the country

Crater Lake National Park is an easy day trip from Train Mountain. There are a few tracks in the PNW, but going east it is a long slog across Idaho, Montana and the Dakotas with not much that I know of in the way of live steam club tracks, but of course Glacier and Yellowstone are there for you.

Re: Gauging interest - 1" Scale Nathan Simplex

It's crazy but I'm interested. I understand the appeal of the challenge to make it working, but have you considered making a dummy that's a glorified elbow? I was considering doing something like that and using your small-scale injector tucked under the cab somewhere as the actual water-mover. I wan...

Re: 80” Boxpok drivers in 1” scale

Beautiful work, thanks for showing some of the process. It's always good to hear of a new engine being built in 1" scale.

Beautiful locomotive. The 1930 Cyc doesn't have a side elevation drawing, just a photo and general data.

Re: Question about a DLS ad

I think Barry left off a couple, I know I've seen O scale live steam running, and I am guessing something matches up with 32mm or 45mm. I really wanted the outer rails to be 7.25" for sake of completeness. I kinda thought they were ridiculous but was sold the idea of them being "guardrails". I don't...
