Re: Kids Hand Crank Rail Pup. Attention Matt Mason....

I swear there were plans in one of Matt Mason’s old magazine, Home Railway Journal. Matt?

Re: Question about coal

Stay way from Wyoming coal. Or was it Utah?. A guy had some at a LALS meet one year, more black/brown, smoked like the devil. He went around the track, looking like a bad fired bbq. We finally had to tell him to stop

Re: Oil firing

This has been discussed before on this board. I remember reading the post. Try a search.

Propane might work, depending on the size of the firebox. Someone also posted about that use in 3/4" locomotives

Radius of an arc or segment

Anyone have a chart for laying out curve track that I can reference for bending rail? I would be for a 1" scale layout. Or point me to one on the internet

Thanks

Re: LALS Web-Site

Cary, I have been checking every day for a month. Someone has dropped the ball badly on this. And before the outage, the old website said that a “new one was coming soon” since January.

I know that we are a volunteer group, but this is ridiculous.

Re: Engine Cleaner (exterior)

I was at a LALS meet one year, one of the elder gents pulled out a small Hudson type sprayer loaded with diesel, and began to spray down his loco. At that point we all left the steaming bay until he was done.
