Having the Gauge is like having a daily R.R. magazine thanks to people like you Shamus! Your posts are as good or better than anything I've seen on the pages of MR or RMC. Keep em' coming!
Your layout is absolutely full of atmosphere. Your photographic skills does it superb justice. Fact is, your pics are so clear it prompts a question ...... Where on earth did you find that spark arrester on No 1's stack???? Only one I've seen of that style is on my static "O" Rivarossi 0-4-0 1880 American.
Tyson, The Gauge is better than a magazine! (it's FREE )
Errol even better than free, it's interactive!!!
Yup - it's free, interatcive, full of lots of goodies, - and it's got Shamus. Nothing else even comes close. Another excellent shot Shamus
Oh Boy! Another great one Shamus!! Please keep 'em coming!!
Hi all, and thanks for the comments, I try my best as always to please.
Errol my friend that spark arrester on # 1's stack is a Brass one I found at a swap meet one day. I wish I had more of them.
If you could post close up shots of that stack, (top,side/s,etc.), with a scale rule in the photo, that shouldn't too hard a thing to scratch a reasonable facimile of.
I will do the photo for you on one condition, you make an extra one for me please.
looking good, Shamus. One of them cameras is definitely on my Chrissie pressie list!
I won't know until I see the level of detail, but if the project lends itself to molding and casting, I could make multiple parts. If not, I can still do at least one extra for you.
Here's the closeup of the stack.
Thankyou, and a sweet piece of hardware it is!
I might be able to cast the basic stack, but the cover will probably have to be done in brass. This will be a fun project.
P.S. can you confirm the stack diameter, I guestimate it at 5'-3"
Shamus, what is the make and model of that shay? I can't tell if it's MDC, Bachmann or a brass import.
BTW, great photo as always.
The diam is as the drawing attached.
The shay is MDC kit, but I back dated it using a longer boiler and all the trimming, plus NWSL gears/shafts/flywheel. Runs as sweet.
Thanks for the diameter. 3/4" measures 5'-4 1/2" in HO scale, I just put recalibration of my eye on my "to do list".
I have two projects nearing completion,( photos when done), and then I can start on the stack.
I could see that the domes were different, but didn't detect the longer boiler. Nice work!
