Re: 19th Century-Early 20th Boiler Color Paint?

Do they still make Russian Iron or American Iron. It seems that most of the engines I've seen restored from the 19th century have Planished Iron boilers, and some locomotives have a fake paint to try and simulate Russian Iron. So is making Russian and American Iron a lost art?

Re: 19th Century Coach Drawings.

I remember reading something about that coaches were painted in varnish and were brown in color.

19th Century Coach Drawings.

Folks I'm looking for help constructing coaches. I have a book on the ET&WNC coaches, but yet it shows no diagrams of the coaches. Yes I'm an East Coast NG person haha. What I'm getting at is, I'm trying to find drawings, and paint patterns for narrow gauge passenger equipment. I'm fond of the 1870s...

Re: 19th Century-Early 20th Boiler Color Paint?

Thank you very much. I've also found an online book of locomotives from the 1850s. It shows some locomotives that used a large amount of brass for their boiler jacket too. This locomotive says it came from Breese, Kneeland from NY. I asked about the boiler paints to see if it was possible. I'm runni...

19th Century-Early 20th Boiler Color Paint?

My Books "Along the ET&WNC" series describe the BLW design and practice in great detail. It mentions that in the 19th century through most of the early 20th century, that there were no paints strong enough to withstand the boiler heat, thus the boilers were left unpainted, and the iron was of the no...

Re: Computer Models.

THanks for the info Andrew! And yes I've updated the windows and scheme a little. I've recently seen some coaches at Strasburg, and I thought they looked beautiful the way they were schemed. Now my models are based off of real designs, but the schemes are to my design somewhat. I also plan on having...

Re: 8-18c 4-4-0 Cab Interior.

Thank ya'll so much. An email of Eureka's cab would be perfect. I am working on an 8-18c computer model for a computer simulation program. I want it to be as accurate as I can get it. http://hostthenpost.org/uploads/545bd93bb7456134b3161bdc042c6b8e.jpg http://hostthenpost.org/uploads/0b9642d077bd09a...

8-18c 4-4-0 Cab Interior.

Hello, I was wondering if anyone knew of, or has any good pictures of an 8-18c's cab interior. The "JD Locomotive Works" page is gone, and along with the company it seems; and that is where I was getting my references for the locomotive's cab from. I should have saved the images while I had the chan...

Computer Models.

Hey ya'll. I'm an On30 modeler, but due to medical issues, and lack of money, I've found a new way to model. I run a program called Auran Tarinz Railroad Simulator 2010-12. This enables me to create my own railroads and such, aswell as a chance for me to make my own locomotives and models for what e...

I stumbled upon this site looking for information on classic Baldwin style locomotives, especially my favorite 19th century engine; the 8-18c 4-4-0. I model in On30, and as well as ...
