Rob,

I don't recall hearing about the derailing issue but Howard does have it, last I knew. Got to see it once when I first moved to MA. I think he has put the new tires on the drivers but got into replacing the side rods and hasn't proceeded past that point.

I have the complete set of Timken 1111 drawings from the CSRM. the set is very complete including booster drawings. Should be every thing you need to build a model. Ed

Broadway Limited has just released an HO scale brass-hybrid model of the NP A-3 locomotive, very close to the 1111 (later the NP 2626.)

The first ho brass engine I ever bought is a NP 4-8-4 one of the NJ International Custom Brass royal series.. bought in about 1979 or 1980. While its a good running locomotive these new modern models run so much better and come painted.

The 4 Aces that the late Phil Wonder completed was started I believe,George Litzen . I hear it was built to 7 1/16"gauge,true 11/2"scale. Litzen never finished it. Phil got it, widened the gauge out to 71/4". The loco had very little play in the running gear,and was prone to derailing if it didn't like the track . An absolutely magnificent machine though.

I've only seen some prints in photo albums at the club. You wouldn't want to see it in its present condition.
