Re: West Coast Live Steam BOOK Project

To my knowledge this book has not been published. Unfortunately Kent Shattock passed away a couple of years ago. I thought that someone was picking up the pieces to try to get it published.

We lost a lot of good history in the mind of Ken. He knew quite a lot concerning live steam

Re: propane question

I would like to see photos of your burner for the locomotive. I have a small 1” scale locomotive that I would like to fire with propane. Are you using an arch? What did yours burn before?

Re: Little Engines Wendy?

I will say "No", neither in 1 1/2" or 1" scales. This must have been kit bashed together with some LE castings.

Truck history

Is there a website that I can go to to get the years certain style trucks were used (Arch, Andrews, Bettendorf, the odd ones, the modern roller/non roller bearing)? Arch from 1865 to 1900?, Andrews from 1880 to 1920? It would help a lot with a model I am working on

Gluing brass to aluminum

Off topic. My son is making a prop for a play. He is trying to glue rifle shells (brass) to a aluminum sheet for effect. welding is out, soldering does not work. Then he tried JB weld, they set up, but early come off if hit accidentally. Super glue and Gorilla glue tried also.

Suggesstions?

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
