Lee Walsh Fernlay, NV.

Does anyone know Lee Walsh from Fernley, NV. ? I think he's also a narrow-gauger.

Jeff Livingston of HRS

Has anyone talked to Jeff Livingston, of the HRS, lately?

Anyone also hear how that huge scanning project, that Jeff was working on there in Oahu at Bishop Library, is tuning out?

OR&L is and was awsome!

Re: F C de Lima & Lurin

Both the Lima & Lurin and the Casa Grande Locomotives are virtually identical to the Sumpter Valleys' #19 & 20. The Teresa Christina, in Brazil had ALCO's, road numbers #153-157, 1941 (!). These locomotives were also built to the same basic design as the above mentioned 3' gauge Alco Mikado's. The m...

Re: Death Valley RR Steel Hoppers

I found it. K&J called that just barely visible beam a "body support" and it was an 8" channel. It ran from "bolster to bolster" and was riveted to the sides of the hopper shute. That helps.

Re: Death Valley RR Steel Hoppers

Does anyone else see, in the catalog page, that the center beams might be stacked two beams high on each side of center? I see rivets where the top center beam stops short in the middle of the car. So maybe the draft center beam is typical, and there is just a second beam added above and just a few ...

Re: Death Valley RR Steel Hoppers

The two specifications have the height 1/4" taller/shorter. (Parts, or spring sag?) By studying the construction and design of these, in the few good photos and promo sketches that exist of these, it appears that the center beam of the frame on these hoppers is an open box made of what appears to be...

Re: Design differences between SPNG locomotives Nos. 8, 9 an

Andrew, are you saying that you have the "Master List of Drawings" to one of those locomotives? That is the list of card numbers for each part needed to build the locomotive.

Re: HH&YV 15" gauge

There are some new YouTube videos of the HH&YV. It looks like they have a lot of new mountainous mainline added.
