Re: rrsc mikado leading truck problem?

Had the same problem, fixed it. I have built 2 of these. One of them is well tested for about 10yrs now. Need to machine down the swing bolster a 1/8" step to clear the pilot truck frame. Here's a picture of what I did.

Re: 80” Boxpok drivers in 1” scale

Anthony, those are awesome! A lot of work even with CNC. Have you considered making a pattern and making castings for them? I am sure more people would be interested in those drivers.

Re: mallet locomotive

I believe Steve Flanders bought it. I met with him at a track in KC and he told me that he was heading up there to buy it. I don't know if he still has it? He sells a lot of stuff on Discover live steam. I think also owns S&S short lines? You might try looking him up.

Re: Paint Didn't Stick

Need to let the base coat set up for 3-5 days. I had the same problem many years ago.
