Re: Refrigerator car question

Salt was added to the ice to make it colder. The black might be a tar based product to help keep things from rusting away.

You can use lbcs's Baker design for a 3/4 loco and double it. It is well documented and easy to follow. The standard ratio of input to valve travel is very standard for baker.
Standard Baker valve gear has a ratio of 4 to 1.

Tubing for Smoke Box

I am looking for a piece of tubing/pipe to make my smoke box. The OD is 85" that scales to 11.333" OD. Do they make 11-1/2" steel tubing?

Thanks
