Here's the real thing!

This one's an earlier version, with the stamped brass pilot and the drilled disc drivers, but it has the valve gear. Later versions had a cast brass pilot and spoked drivers.

Here are some photos of the innards of the HP Products 4-6-2:

The ever-reliable DC-60 is the heart of the HP Products 4-6-2.

As opposed to the smaller HP Products steamers, such as the 0-6-0, 0-8-0, 2-8-0, and 4-4-2, the boiler casting covers the entire motor. The boiler shell easily outweighs the frame and motor.

Started work on my 4-6-2 to see if I can get it back into service.
The motor was dry and the commutator clogged up. Cleaned the commutator and lubed the bearings, The motor runs fine now.
The next problem is that the drivers are loose on their axles. The insulator on the insulated side seems to have shrunk a bit. Now the drivers are out of quarter. I need to make a simple jig to quarter the drivers and then super glue them in place. Then it should be a simple matter to clean and paint the model.
What could possibly go wrong?<G>

Unfortunately, that is what Photobucket is doing, not my handiwork.

Did you keep the photos on your own computer? Maybe edit the old post(s) and upload the pictures on this forum, not on the Photobucket ?

I did, but that was on a computer that failed years ago. I still have the hard drive, though.

I plan on updating pictures on all of my posts that use Photobucket, but that will take some time to locate all the photos and "fix" the posts.

I have a HP 4-6-2 kit that I will be working on soon (once I get it unpacked), which will be uploaded when I can get it found. I have a video on YouTube of it, back when I lived in Georgia and planned on making a Southern Railway "Ps-Clone" (Similar to a Ps-4 class 4-6-2, with some differences) out of it, but with the move back to the midwestern USA, the desire for that particular project has gone away.

Here is a video of an unassembled HP Producst 4-6-2:
https://youtu.be/4LPfLONObvE

The project to assemble it is currently stalled as the kit is in two containers that are still packed from the last move.

I do have another HP Products 4-6-2 that is a little more assembled that I am planning on restoring in short order, though.
