Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

Appearing LS was a build project for a BLW Westinghouse electric boxcab in 1½ inch scale. It was originated at a California LS Club and about 20 were built there. [/quote wrote: This should be the same locomotive I mentioned several posts up designed by John Grant.

Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

You are correct about this. LS mag discontinued the series prior to completion My recollection is that there was a several month hiatus in publishing the 0-6-0 design while the legalities were worked out. In the end, the series started again but Live Steam carried ads for Model Engineer for the dur...

Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

Wasn't Moody Braun responsible for adapting the LE Pacific into LE's new Northern and Hudson?

Winton Brown marketed a 1-1/2 gauge 2-6-0 and 2-8-0. I always assumed he was the designer but could be wrong.

Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

3-1/2" Canadian 0-8-0 switcher, "Caribou." Martin Evans. A book and drawings is or was available. (I have both, anyone looking for copies?)

Gerry Penrose wrote a construction article in Live Steam on Buffalo (I think that was the name), an unauthorized 0-6-0 adaptation of the design.

Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

Maybe you could start a second list of non-steam locomotives? I found this 2010 post by John Grant to the Live Steam email group. Dick Thomas and I built the first pair of the electric locomotives and then encouraged Andy Morrison to start a group to build about 25 copies Dick and I use few plans so...
