Re: Steam Locomotive model drawings

It would seem that John Johnson's 1½ scale Western Maryland #6 Shay is missing from the list. What about Ken Schreoder's (spelling) shay? Who did the Cli-Shay that was a project in LS?

If 100 wheelsets enter the block, and a 100 wheelsets exit the block, the block is clear, otherwise the block is occupied. Traffic signal loop detectors...

That model was sold to Howard Gorin in the Walham Mass area about 5 years ago. The gentleman from Akron had acquired the factory d...
