Re: Looking for someone to build a scale water tank

I have 25yrs in residential construction and wood work. I’m currently building in 3” scale. Do you have plans and what level of detail are you looking for?
The car in the picture below is one I’ve built in 3”.

Re: 12” gauge DRGW Inspired RR

Think I know the photo issue. If I post a picture taken with my phone turned sideways it says the file is too large. So I’ll retake some photos and post them.

Re: 12” gauge DRGW Inspired RR

Long caboose update: Last couple of months have been very busy, and haven’t gotten as far along as I’d like. Caboose frame is assembled, coupler and bolsters are welded up.

Glenn, I was surprised to see pillow blocks on a park train. Gives me hope for my flange bearings!
Here are some photos I found online of that “ugly duck” steam outline.

Re: 12” gauge DRGW Inspired RR

At one time they had a live steam locomotive, now they have a steam outline.
The new outline is straight up ugly.
They should have converted the steamer pictured below.

Mad max on rails!
This one has English subtitles.
Apparently you'll want fashionable rubber boot to ride this rail!

We are building a 15" gauge railroad here in Phoenix, AZ & are in need of additional 12# rail. Have you located a source of rail? The only large source of 12lb rail I’m currently aware of is the large stash that American Heritage Railroad in Greenville Ill. At one time they were considerin...

Re: ID this rail?

My guess it’s factory G16/G12 rail.
It had a slightly narrower railhead than 12lb.
Glenn, few months back you you had mentioned some 8lb rail that need pulled up, is this the rail what you were talking about ?
