Now Si

Just because I sold you a lot of stock in the Herb-O Rivet Enterprise (company sounds SO mundane), don't think that it's value will go up the more you mention it.

Excellent work on the Ingersoll-Rand and the Chevy.
I hope to see more of the layout too.

regards

Si
Not to disturb your time /space reasoning, but there are TWO 1:41's each day (Q.E.D.)!!!

Small loco is scratch built, brass, with K&D #1 motor (how many remember them? )
Modeled from plans of the H&F switchers it had poles for many years, but when I decided to go to all pantographs, it got one (also scratch).

Wow, those are some TIGHT reverse curves. What's the radius on those, Herb? Very cool!

Is there a photo of the loco at the front of that train on that picture Si posted?

Hi Dan

That pix was part of a test just to see if it could be done. The curve is 12 or 12 1/2 inch radius. After I pulled the train around the loop, a friend said "bet you can't push it back." So, as most of the brown bottles were empty by then-and it was after one in the morning--I very cautiously reversed and slowly backed around the curve. With on board batteries, and RC, I never seems to have the higgles and jiggles that a wheel running over that last microscopic bit of dirt on the rail can cause. Now all this was to prove to Mr Greene that a certain opinion of his, was, as the Brits would say, rubbish. I wont embarrass a good friend by going into the subject matter again, he is busy with his new layout, which has to be at least half finished by now, with the speed that he fills scenic area with track. Amazing man.

Where was I? Oh yes, the curve. The ultimate use of this loop will be only to reverse the electric pantograph equipped passenger cars--for those it is wholly appropriate and prototype. Lacawanna & Wyoming Valley (the Laurel Line) had one like this at both it's end terminals.

Work is progressing (?) at both the end termini, but I'm like a garden slug at a drag race anymore, so don't dust off your 5x7 Speed Graphics. When enough transpires to make a difference, I will post.
