:apl:Very nice design Daniel. Following a vision on a computer screen or just an idea thru to a completed project can be extremely rewarding. Sharing with a friend.......Priceless!!

Woody, far from a "mangle"; excellent modeling and weathering of your fine coach!!A great addition to the Mogollon Railroad! Outstanding photo's Guys!!

Thanks James. Daniel's kit is the best, bar none. As I stated somewhere, the parts almost don't need glue, matter of fact, the bench seats inside are not glued in place but rather "snap" in place.Daniel is a master of such things. Also, most of the Mogollon equipment is mangled, I just wanted to do the best I could to show off Daniel's fine work. What you can't really see are the "passengers" inside-one is drinking booze, another wants his bottle, another is laughing at those two, a fellow is almost asleep with a cigarette in hand, and overlooking this chaos is a fellow holding a carbine just in case. A typical day for miners.

Daniel-the fellow with the carbine says "no way"...and he is holding the gun! Have pity on those poor miners, they used to have to ride in open ore cars to work but now have the luxury of a nice coach they can ride in.

I have installed a brake staff with a bar and knob rather than a brake wheel. I do hope the train crews can accept this as they are set in their ways....well, they are plastic!         Woodie

           (May be I must look again...)

Daniel,

I don't think Woodie has posted a new picture yet. He was out of brake wheels when the build was completed and was wanting something else to use, even a simple 1/32nd spanner.

We gotta order more details Woodie!!

Did you see the note from Jerry Kitts with FWM about doing a run of 1/32 box cars and detail parts? Maybe they'll do brake wheels with rathets and pawls.

James

James:

           Yes, of course. I understood that. But I was making as much pressure as I was able to get some new photos from him.

            Yes , I have seen  jerry's mail and I have loits of questions about it. I hope he will give us much information soon.

            An 1:32 scale boxcar kit will certainly be welcome!

 

                                  Daniel

No, I haven't taken any pics of the brake "wrench" but will later. I couldn't find what I wanted and made something from a small brass pin, a piece of flat brass, and the staff wire, soldered together. It will still need a rachet & pawl to hold the brakes and of course the chain and underbody brake levers, rods, and whatever I can put under there without being obsessive about "fine details".   Woodie 

If there are detail parts in the future, I would suggest they be made from brass...plastic is a little too flimsy for my stuff and besides, I have some crewmen who are very hard on the equipment.

UPDATE-here is the brake staff arrangement, still unfinished but Daniel is "hot" to see what I figured out.



More to be done, but that's it....so far..

Woodie:
      
    Well done! It is exactly the kind of brake lever that corrsaponds to that kind of rolling stock...well, at least in my island. I will be very pleased to adopt it. Yes, the American practice was mostly brake wheels, but Europeand wasn't, at least in such small gauges. I really like it. Thank you for the photo.

                     Daniel

Daniel, since the last photo, I have added a rachet & pawl on the brake staff and have the lever hooked up by chain to brake rodding and a bell crank on the underbody. When I can get a decent photo, I will post it. Again, thanks for the kit, when I get some more lettering sets, it will be named the D. Caso. She has some mileage on her now and will begin "regular" service when I put the railroad back together soon.          Woodie
