JNXT 7707: Good point, Frankie. Could make a big difference. Dec 4, 2019 19:35:52 GMT -5
TK Dave: I forgot to go to Draude's tonight ... I'm out of Kadee 141s B-| Dec 4, 2019 21:13:58 GMT -5
oldtimer52: That's OK TK. We all do that now and then in our older years. Dec 5, 2019 6:21:28 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: "Forgot" to go to Draude's?!?! Pull yourself together, TK! Dec 5, 2019 9:33:43 GMT -5 *
rbturner: "Rock's up" Dec 5, 2019 14:30:45 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: OK I'll bite....what does "Rock's up" mean, Randy Fe? Dec 6, 2019 23:52:00 GMT -5
rbturner: Just received a phone call from the Orbitron mobile unit. He was coming from a train show and seemed to be in a good mood so..... Dec 7, 2019 14:59:10 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: How's everyone doing? Dec 8, 2019 15:19:48 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: I'm busy with college, hence my not being around in a while. But I decided I'd pop in for a bit today, check in on things here Dec 8, 2019 15:23:12 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: I still haven't done any physical work on the 2-10-4, but I have almost finished drawing up a pattern for making a tender. Dec 8, 2019 15:24:05 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: I've designed the pattern to be adjustable in terms of length. Do people think a 52' tender on 6-wheel trucks would look alright? Dec 8, 2019 16:05:09 GMT -5
rbturner: 52' sounds like a PRR long haul tender. Dec 8, 2019 21:23:14 GMT -5
John: Not only does Hallmark stay on all day. There is no more room on the playback device. I have to fight her to keep her from buying Hallmark Christmas DVDs. I am fully convinced they are really chick flicks with Christmas titles. Dec 9, 2019 0:12:52 GMT -5
ZeldaTheSwordsman: That was my inspiration. But I don't have any 8-wheel tender trucks at present, 6-wheel are the largest I have and I don't know if that would look adequate on a 52'. So I've made provision for doing 40' or 45' instead Dec 9, 2019 3:28:49 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Mantua tenders are 37' with 6-wheel trucks. They look just a little stubby to my eye, so 40'-45' should look good. Dec 9, 2019 14:08:35 GMT -5
The Jade Fog, formerly: Dave: I know where an M-1 Mountain 12 wheel tender is... Just saw it a few days ago in a stash of locos in a junk pile at Draude's! Dec 9, 2019 15:49:33 GMT -5
frankenstein: John, I'm telling you the actors in Hallmark "movies" are pod people. Dec 10, 2019 16:27:01 GMT -5
rbturner: The only redeeming quality of Hallmark movies is that they occasionally use cute girls. Dec 10, 2019 17:53:46 GMT -5
rbturner: I re-built a brass ATSF tender a few years ago and I looked high and low for 4 axle trucks. The prices on them were stunning so it got 3 axle trucks. Dec 12, 2019 11:13:33 GMT -5
JNXT 7707: Those things are hard to find. I had a couple sets of them from some Bachmann long-haul tenders, that I used on the articulated tanker - but they had solid plastic wheelsets. Dec 12, 2019 14:30:24 GMT -5
