Re: 3/4"Kozo A3.

I purchased a pair of cylinders and 6 drivers to make a small Mogul from the Raritan castings. I have turned the drivers and they are the best castings I have turned. Very nice quality.

Re: 3/4"Kozo A3.

In the 2016 small scale meet topic there is a video of an A3 as a tank engine. Is this what you are wanting to see?

Re: Double Vertical Check Valve

I have been looking for the plans for one in 3/4" scale. I see them on some of the small engines but have not found the plans yet.

1 inch Ten Wheeler - North American Live Steamer March 1956

On the International Brotherhood of Live Steamers web page it has a picture of Richard J. Stokes Ten Wheeler in 1 inch scale. It was from the March 1956 North American live Steamer.

Re: Blueprints for 1" freight locos

A friend made an 060 into a nice looking 262. To me if you just use a stock 060 to make a 260 there is to much cab and firebox behind the last driver.

Re: Blueprints for 1" freight locos

If you have the prints for a Pacific it would not take much to adjust the spacing on the axles and side rods to have a 482. Use the British designs to find smaller drivers that will work for this wheel arrangement.

Re: A3 vs Connor Beam vs Raritan

The advantage with the Allen 040 over the A3 and Raritan in 1 1/2 you would not have to scale up the plans from 3/4".

It is not a full build plans of a 1.5" car, but 3/8" scale drawings of a Southern Pacific reefer. The...

Re: Plans for 1.6" wood reefer

Modeltec had an article June, July, and August 1989 by Steve Booth as part of his project rolling stock articles on building a wood reefer. June has plans from I think it was Mainline Modeler with construction details spread out through the three months.
