Re: Should I feel complimented or pissed off?

I think it was independently filmed.
Your video shows the chair is empty and the other video shows your wife or daughter sitting in it.

Fairbanks-Morse H10-44 photos

Hello everyone, I took a day trip today to the Depot Museum in Brodhead, Wisconsin. They have The Milwaukee Road #781 just outside the old depot. Took a few roof top photos today using a digital camera mounted on a tripod, taped to a tall wooden stick. Using the camera time delay feature, I had 10 s...

Should the drive shaft between the motor and truck be perpendicular

The wagon top boxcar looks great; even without the rivets! :thumbup:

TT Standards Gauge

I drew up a TT Standards Gauge in CAD using the NMRA standards.
It is based on the HO Style NMRA Standards Gauge.
The pocket for the coupler is for a Micro-Trains 1015 N scale coupler.
DXF file attached.

Kind regards,
Robert

Re: Coupler height

I am wondering what would be the correct dimensions for a Micro-Trains 1015 coupler to get it centered to the .281" height. MT-1015-TT-scale.jpg The draft gear box measures about .205" wide x .128" thick. The coupler appears to be centered in the draft gear box. Should I use .345" for the upper dime...

The TT_IMS group over on Yahoo Groups produced a resin GP38 shell, whatever happened to plans for the drive for that? What is needed first is a good set of trucks with qu...

Re: Chapman GP7 Project

I have probably reread all 38 pages of this project about 5 times already. I sure would like to see the chassis part of this project finished for an example of how to build one. The knowledge learned then could be applied to other models. Building a chassis seems to be more difficult for most of us;...
