    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! :cool:

    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! :D :D (it's FREE :) )

    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.

    Shamus,
    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.

    Shamus,
    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.

    Shamus,
    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.
    Pete


    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.

    Hi Pete,
    The diam is as the drawing attached.

    Uteram,
    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.

    Shamus,
    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!
