Re: Santa Fe gas electrics

I owned a 7.5 model of the Santa Fe m-190. It was acquired in Phoenix I think in the late 90’s. Your info is correct as I sold it to a gentleman I believe from Iowa where it was subsequently destroyed in a garage fire.
I am currently. I will try to dig up some pics, but it may take awhile.

Re: An interesting train ride

Thanks for the heads up Greg. I do quartz mining in Arkansas and end up in Tucson quite often. May take that trip.

Morris switcher trucks

So now that we worked out that one 8hp kohler should be sufficient for my PA I have a question about my other project. Several years ago I purchased a set of Morris switcher trucks with the intention of build an electric powered unit. Does anyone have pictures, drawings, or suggestions as to the dri...

Re: 8hp vs 16 hp

There’s something I hadn’t even thought about. These are set up in parallel with a tee and lines to each truck. Would plumbing them in series be a better choice?
