1.6" Cross Compound AC Drawing Needed

All, Looking for anyone who has a side elevation drawing of a 1.6" scale cross compound air compressor showing the overall outline of the compressor and the location of the mounting holes. I just need this to make sure I properly locate the mounting brackets on the front frame spreader for a 1.6" sc...

Re: Ulin Locomotive Works

I spoke with Rich about this a few years ago and he had been running into this issue with the foundries around Longmont and Greely that serve the sugar beet industry. It was nothing new to him at the time and he had already stopped marketing his really nice 1.6" cross compound air compressor as a fu...

Re: Dave Gumz' 4-6-0 4-3/4" Narrow Gauge

So do we know who has the drawings for this engine currently? I know a young man in the Denver area who thinks he has a boiler and smokbox that might have been built for a T-12 but got nothing else from the seller. Does anyone know of any sets of castings floating around? Have Warren and Gail ever r...

Re: Tracks in Connecticut?

I just met a local contractor yesterday who helps Barry with a lot of his heavier earthmoving work. Word is they are eliminating the steep grade along the driveway.

Dick,

You are helping make some really special, hopefully permanent, memories for Hunter and his sister. Way to go! Can't wait to see Hunter running your A5 pulling your ballast car, too!

Re: Mystery Cab Forward at GGLS...

All, Andy's H-8 is still at the C&O Railway Heritage Center in Clifton Forge, VA. However, I do not believe their agreement with the owner allows for it to be operated. It is a gorgeous engine and I hope to get to see it in person one day myself. They also have in their collection a very fine 1.5" C...

Re: Fabricated Cylinders

It's not often that I have much if anything to contribute, but here is how my fabricated piston valve cylinders are looking in the very early stages for my C&O Greenbrier in 1.6" scale. The design very much follows the Ed Yungling approach. The 1/4" thick profile plates were laser jet cut from my CA...
