Re: What do we have for pics and video of the Waushakum Norfolk street era?

Pat these pictures are excellent! Didn't know the snakes came often. Can just imagine people accidentally kicking snakes they didn't know were there as they road. Does this happen at the current track? Please keep the pics coming. I really like what I see. So Bill, the 2-4-0 is yours? What is that? ...

Re: What do we have for pics and video of the Waushakum Norfolk street era?

Pat, do you remember a day in the mid 80's when a huge garden snake was slithering around under the bridge supports at the far end of the track? I remember someone was taking a bunch of pics of it. Was it you?

Re: What do we have for pics and video of the Waushakum Norfolk street era?

Thanks Alex, Pat you've really made my day with these excellent pictures! So all of them are from 76? I guess the engine houses in the back of the layout came later cause most of them aren't there yet in that 2nd picture? Always wondered about that switch also in the 2nd pic. Can't run from the turn...

Re: This is my workbench now, what can I do to improve it?

Thanks Denny, thanks for the replies everyone. Hope I didn't make a bad move but I ordered this integrated keyless drill chuck. Once it arrives, if I like it I might get a mt2 version for my tailstock. https://www.ebay.com/itm/R8-Ball-Bearing-Keyless-Drill-Chucks-1-2-Integral-design-DCK-R8-12/163466...

Re: What do we have for pics and video of the Waushakum Norfolk street era?

The members of WLS have plenty of pictures of the Norfolk street location. Are you a member of WLS? If not you should become one, live steam clubs need all of the support that they can get these days since it is expensive to maintain facilities and pay for insurance. Not a member, but when I get my...

Re: What do we have for pics and video of the Waushakum Norfolk street era?

It all depends on your definition of 'WE' I have boxes of pictures that were taken by Jim Stuart over the years they were there...I only know a few people in the pictures since I never made it to WLS at their original location. WE are too busy building a loco (unfortunately) at this time to digitiz...

Re: Smokebox Length Ratio
