72" Tender for a 1½ scale Bershire

I have a friend that is building an electric Berkshire. He's looking either for a used tender or a tender kit to hold the batteries.

Any ideas...

#4 Size Brass Rod

I have a project that requires some control rods wit 4-36 threads cut onto them. A bunch of years ago, i remember a vendor selling a variety pack of about a dozen 12 inch long sticks of numbered bar brass rod. Can anyone point me to a source of #4 sized rod?

Re: Nusky/Mercer 0-4-0 driver width?

Just a thought, but if you travel, a loco of 7¼ gage with wide treads, could also be operated on 7½ gage track. Some of the tracks in Florida are set up for dual gage. The 6.75 inch back to back is a Pennsylvania Live Steamers thing. It provides a thicker flange, which was believed to be safer from ...

Re: Extended Piston Rod

Hi,
In the late 1800's, certainly the above reasons were accurate, but the extended piston rod could/was also used to pump water on it's forward stroke into the sealed sleeve. I believe that B&O used this technology.

Re: FM "B" drop equalizer truck plans or drawings?

Hi, Research isn't always that easy. It take time and patience. Some times one lead doesn't have anything, but they are able to point you toward an answer. Also realize that you are searching for the equivalent of Edsel drawings. You may be one of the few people that has so far expressed an interest...

Re: FM "B" drop equalizer truck plans or drawings?

According to Wikipedia there is a preserved H16-44 somewhere in Canada, and a couple more in Central America. I thumbed thru the Canadian Museums in the guide but didn't see it.

Who was the FM archivist in Baraboo?
