There are also a few things in 1/24 section of Shapeways that can be used. I just order a 1/43 version of the Simple...

Re: Where to get link and pin couplers?

I would go with Tebee's offering on the Shapeways site, and make your own links out of flat brass stock or styrene sheet. Hi, I am back again. No longer steam centric, but moved on to gas-mechanical and WW1. Any one looked at the Tateyama Sabo railway in Japan ? Although it is 60cm gauge, there is s...

Steve's Health

long time no see, what is the current status on Steve ? I was going to recommend the Pepper7 site to a few guys on one of the Facebook groups, when I saw the notice.

I am working on a few designs for my Shapeways site, I will post when I am done.

Hmm, I spied pot chucks, collet chucks, looks like it may be possible to do horizontal milling. The lathe is set up to do indexing as well, am I seeing correctly ? Nice, very nice.

There are shops like Dream-Steam, PPS, and others who sells parts for higher pressure boilers, such as regulators or pop off valves. Are you going to manually add steam cylinder oil or be using a on board pump ? Interes...

There were prototypes for that !

The two foot gauge Sandy River of Maine had two 0-4-4 locomotives that ran cab first, Puck and Aerial.

In the Morenci/Clifton area of Arizona, there were three 20" gauge railroads that ran 0-4-2s, 0-4-0s, and 0-4-4 Porters. They ran both ways.

Gordon, hope you don't mind a small suggestion about wear area. The coupler pockets would likely have bare metal showing due to frequent installing and removing of links and pins. Maybe even a little rounding over of the edges of the pocket openings.

As it is, a great little critter.

Jez, did you use a file on the cab rail support as opposed to the lathe bit ? 3mm brass stock cannot take much pressure when turning, but going .005" per pass would drive you nuts in a hurry !

Nice turnings on the chimney, by the way.

Nice job with the link 'n pins operation, Colin !

Regarding Marc, sometimes it seems his professional background [isn't he an architect?] bleeds into his hobby area. He can be harsh, but his modeling for the most part, backs him up. IMHO.

I wonder if the Acetate part of PVA 'melts' the resin, enabling the bond. I have to try this approach, could do without the CA related headaches.
