Re: A visit to Tom Miller's Railroad

Wow this is an old thread! Good memories :) Unfortunately, there is not a cohesive set of drawings for the C-16 that I am aware of. Peter, Ron and Bill's engines were pieced together through direct measurement of the prototype located on display in Gunnison and historical reference photos. There is ...

Re: Kerr Stuart Wren

It seems that you would want the drawing set by Ken Swan, but it doesn't appear to be available anywhere. The overwhelming majority of Wrens in the UK were built with these plans which are reputedly excellent.

Here is an example: http://www.gwhengineering.co.uk/model%2 ... 0build.htm

Re: Freelanced D&RG K-36 for sale (NZ, Ships worldwide, re-gaugeable)

I found a couple more photos I took of this engine myself a few years ago. The articulated it is standing next to in the last shot was also built by Harold Sinclair, you can see the family resemblance. Harold was a prolific model builder and used many of the same parts on all of his engines.

Re: Freelanced D&RG K-36 for sale (NZ, Ships worldwide, re-gaugeable)

Here is a good shot with an engineer on board. It's slightly smaller than Tom Miller's K-36 but still a substantial engine weighing over 1,300 lbs. I'd say this would make a good logging mike, or freelanced engine for any fictional road, or with a good amount of cosmetic work look like an actual D&R...

Re: safety tread

You can also use the grease catching netting from pizza boxes depending on the scale. Someone gave me some a long time ago.

You basically glue it on to the smooth metal surface and then paint the whole thing.

Re: Mystery 9" Gauge Trucks

Mike, thanks for commenting. I did look up your RR on facebook and found it to be quite impressive. Not sure what I plan to do with the trucks at this point. Maybe we need an east coast division of the 9” gauge community? I would like to see if I could locate the original locomotive that sat on the...

3 3/4" scale Garratt for sale (NZ, ships worldwide)

(note: this item was listed previously and then taken off the market for a while; there were enough changes to the description plus a new photo that I thought it would be best to start a new thread for it rather than revive the old one): Ian Welch has decided to part ways with this stunning model af...
