I'm at it again

Greetings, I have ordered a short kit from Bob Hartford for the SPC ventilated box cars, as I compile my wood order I find I need the help of this wonderful group. First, what was the size of the floor planks, were they tongue and groove, ship lap or just plane planks? Second, what size was the sidi...

Re: V&T wooden ore cars

Greetings,

I was under the impression that the ore cars were made of iron like the one shown below or were there two different classes of them. I suspect that the one with the number 101 is a better example of the cars.

Re: Our First Group project, V&T 9 & 10

Craig, Yes there are a few of us that have played around with standard gauge in 1:20.3, the Bachmann 45 ton side rod switcher was really a standard gauge engine that Bachmann put on 3' gauge trucks. Some people have converted it to standard gauge so they can run some dual gauge track. Yes those that...

Re: Our First Group project, V&T 9 & 10

Greetings,

Is there any plans for these cars? I would like to build a set in 1:20.3 and put them on narrow gauge trucks so I can run them and build a set of trucks in standard gauge to display them on since no one that I knows makes any standard gauge locomotives in 1:20.3.

Andre :)

Re: SPC Carter Brothers 28' Flat Cars

Greeting Well, not much has happened on the car. After hemming and hawing over weather to use stock sized wood or re-cut to match the drawing and listed dimensions and listening to the gentlemen here and on myLargescale.com I have decided that Bob Hartford did have it right and that I was going to h...

Re: SPC Carter Brothers 28' Flat Cars

John and Randy, Thanks for the input regarding the lumber size that the Carter Brothers might have used. I suspect that this is for a 10 ton car or at least I hope it is. I have sent an e-mail to Bob Hartford to see what his input is on this little dilemma that I am having. As to the trucks Bob at H...

SPC Carter Brothers 28' Flat Cars

Greetings, I have a few questions and need a few opinions regarding some cars that I am going to build in Fn3. This whole process started when I bought one of Accucraft's wonderful live steam Americans, the SPC #3 in green. It may not be 100% accurate for the SPC #3 but it is live steam and so what ...
