Re: Linkage repair on a brass locomotive

​I would suggest a tiny brass pop rivet ;)  I realize that you may never have riveted valve gear and it isn't as simple as using a screw, but any owner of steam models should have this skill in their quiver.

Hi All,

I had the linkage break on one of my brass locomotives. It appears to have been held together by a tiny brass pop rivet. Does anyone have a suggestion on the best way to replace it and reconnect the linkage?

Thanks,

Hi Tony,

Sorry unable to post a pic at the moment but possibly later. The side rod linkage that is broken attaches to the Eccentric; The locomotive is a Ho scale,  Key Imports early Challenger
If that helps any? I'll try and post a pick later.

Re: DW composite GS gon FS

How similar is this one?

Yes, steel replacement sides, and a different end, but overall size and appearance.

Re: Alexander scale models

Gene Green <genegreen1942@...>
 

The Mini-Movers [sic?] were, among other machines, models of a Caterpillar scraper.  I have three different versions.  I don't if the different Cat scraper versions were all available at the same time or produced sequentially.  They make excellent flat car loads.

I should emphasize that many'most of these series are likely to have had any influence from ARA or ARR designs. 
Some with fishbelly underframe for example.

Have in my photo captions the 20000-20249 series were 1936 so I guess they 'anticipated' the 1937 AAR. 

Was the GM&O the only railroad with composite side knock-off versions of 1932 AAR, 1937 AAR and Modified 1937 AAR (War Emergency) boxcars?

Re: Alexander scale models

Daniel A. Mitchell
 

The only Roco Minimovers scrapers I’m familiar with were Caterpillar prototypes. The same scraper bowl came with three tractor versions …

1) A common Cat 631 2-wheeled tractor.
2) A common Cat DW20 4-wheeled tractor
3) the same 4-wheeled tractor with a “limber” to support the front of the bowl.


The 4-wheeled tractor was also sold separately.

The Roco models are quite nice ... they just need some minor added details.

Whiel the purpose and approx. size are similar, the LeTourneau machines looked quite different. I’m not aware of any HO modelsof these.

I had a Roco Minimovers[0] model of what I remember to be a Letourneau scraper[1], possibly a Tournapull-with-Carryall. Unfortunately Deep Storage™ is difficult of access for the nonce or I'd capture a pic and post it.

Re: GM&O 4670

Ben, My database coughs up 639 single-sheathed series, new or renumbered, that are either spot on or an inch or so off from one or more inside dimensions of either ARA 1932, or AAR 1937, or as modified 1941, or AAR 1942 (50 ft car). Some are single door, some are double door, especially the 50 ft 1942 dimensions. I was surprised by the count!

Re: Funaro & Camerlengo T-24 Buckeye Cushion Resin trucks

Brent Greer
 

Here is some supplemental information I shared with Pierre for the pending N&W B5 boxcar project, regarding the trucks that were applied to these cars.  Bud Jeffries from the N&W Historical Society has a drawing from the N&W archives that describes the various classes of trucks for N&W equipment.  There were six classes of trucks used in "High Speed Freight" service.

They were:

Class     Type                             Used on            
T-74      Young, Buckeye              B-4 Box cars
T-75      Barrett Whitehead           B-5    "
T-76      Nat'l Malleable Type B    B-5    "
T-77      Buckeye All Service        B-5    "
T-78      Allied Full Cushion          B-5    " 
T-79      Young, Buckeye             G-3 Mill type Gondola

Of the six classes, four were used under the B5

The drawing's last revision date is 11-11-53 and it lists only two other classes of trucks being used under the B5 boxcars, they are the T-41b and T-71 as of that date.

B5 series 48000-48999 were built with N&W class T-41b, T-71, T-75, T-76, T-77.   (Some cars appear to have received the T-78 trucks later on)

B5 series 49500-49999 all had N&W T-71 class trucks.

Hi-
I have 24 roofs which I was holding for a buyer who informed me that he needs less than originally ordered. That frees up 24 roofs which can be purchased for $2.50/each. Contact me off-list for purchase/shipping details at <midcentury@...>
