Re: Color and Line Standards

On linework I wasn't thinking about true ownership at all...boundary work in the case of the NPC, worrying about actual ownership of the 2.3 gajillion parcels is a stupid-crazy project. Perfect for the Marin County Bike Coalition to force upon the taxpayers because it will cost millions to cover the...

Re: Color and Line Standards

I've run into a problem with tunnels while starting the conversion of the NPC to Andrew's new line-work standard. My line-work vanishes at anything over 2.0 pixels weight. It looks like it's probably dropping to sea level. It will show up when the "Extend path to ground" toggle is selected and arbit...

Re: Library day in Petaluma

And what did the board decide on...beyond the beer and scenery being attractive? The historical society's new digs are quite nice, everything's far more accessible that the old facility at Sonoma State from quite a few years ago. They have a great crew cataloging the collection as well. Lots of trea...

Re: Library day in Petaluma

Heading out shortly for Petaluma.
Yummy Lagunitas beer should spark some interesting discussions!

Re: Hetch Hechy and the Rim fire

This could be a fun trip. Need GPS, assuming a local motel and beer money. Rain gear might help. What kind of mileage of ROW are we dealing with?

Re: A Little Something We've Been Working On

Decal update : Nearly done designing the artwork. Just a few bits to add...like drop shadowing to the Colorado names and an alternate striping for the cylinder heads. The sheet will have at least 6 colors and gold. One set will include 2 sheets. Designed for O Scale (On3/30) locos. Note: The backgr...

Re: 2 1/2" scale NPC 21

Before committing to the "NG to the Redwoods" drawings there are better illustrations to work from. The Freak is a hell of a project! I'm digging through my computer and disks, I've got a bunch of it somewhere. Try: http://www.aqpl43.dsl.pipex.com/MUSEUM/LOCOLOCO/NPC21/NPC21.htm There are Patent doc...

Re: Blake Pumps?

Terry just may have hit gold at a museum backshop visit. A little Blake Simplex pump. It appears to be closely related to the model used on Bully Boy! How closely can't be determined until the plugs over the inlet and exhaust ports get dimensioned (and maybe chamber diameters....maybe). That calls f...
