Re: Nickel Plate 762

Regarding Larry Goldsby's C&O T-1 Texas, other than Jim's driver castings, Larry did make a lot of other patterns and cast a lot of parts but still fabricated much of the engine including the cylinders, cradle and trailing truck frame among others.

Re: 1" scale steam dome. Turret

Kimball,

The 1", 3/4" and 1/2" scale LE parts and inventory have been out of circulation for roughly 20 years now. No word if there is even a glimmer of hope of the smaller scale stuff ever being made available again right now.

Re: 1.5" scale narrow gauge K-36

Maybe not more in shear number of patterns but they'll be on average a little bigger for a K36.

Jeff, very interesting to see the two vertical brake cylinders are mounted to the backside of the cylinder castings. Too cool. What parts are you going to tackle next? Main frames?

Re: ASR Major Corporate Sponsorship Announcement

Nyle, I certainly understand your concern with the wording. In practice, even at a local chemical refinery that my employer and I have worked in over the past few weeks, even their policy allows that if you can maintain 6' or more distancing from other workers, you don't HAVE to wear a mask.

All, We are a mere 25 staybolts or $250.00 away from being fully funded! Don't miss your chance to be a part of making history. BTW, you can now get your very own serialized old staybolt from the 2100 as your own paperweight or gift for that special steam friend AND you'll sponsor 3 new staybolts in...
