Re: Cuzco narrow gauge

Randy, I visited Machu Picchu last year and road the Cuzco y Santa Ana rail line to the site like everyone else. A great experience and unfortunately no longer operating any steam locomotives. There is an interesting article in the April, 1927 issue of "Baldwin Locomotives" magazine on the building ...

Re: Yellow Pine Mining Shays

Andrew,

I think your photo shows one of the Kelley Island Lime & Transportation Co. Shays, probably taken during the 1937 R&LHS tour of the facility.

Re: Carter Bros. SPC Coach 42 in HOn3

John, The coach looks great. I am currently working on a drawing for a driver center which I am going to convert to a 3D STL file, and then send off to Shapeways. This is my first Rapid Prototype project so it is a learning curve. I have worked with 2D CAD for years but am now trying to learn Alibre...

Photographs show that cars 14 and 17 stayed int...

Re: Pacific Car & Foundry - ng cars built?

Brian, et all, I wanted to add to the list the wood hoppers built by Seattle Car & Foundry for the Dolly Varden Mine Ry. up in B.C.. Also my original response listing the Death Valley Ry. caboose #100. I should have said it was built by Seattle Car & Foundry, as Pacific Car & Foundry had not acquire...

Brian,

Add to your list the Death Valley Ry. caboose, which was also built by Pacific Car & Foundry.

Re: Who Made It?

Jeff,

You might also consider Magor Car Company. Magor built a good deal of export equipment and a fair number of cars for the military.

Re: Death Valley RR Steel Hoppers

Randy, I believe the Kilbourne & Jacobs catalog page you posted is from their catalog #65, and as far as I know it is the only published image of the style 619 hoppers. From what I can determine the catalog cut shows a car similar to those sold to the Eureka Hill railroad in Utah. These cars were ba...

Re: Pioche Pacific Shay #3

Guys, I have collected information on the K&J steel hoppers used at Pioche for a number of years and I do not think that the Eureka Hill cars ever made it to Pioche. The Eureka hill cars were equipped with air brakes and none of the Pioche hoppers seen in photos show any evidence of having air brake...
