Hi Si,

here's on you don't have




One careful owner, never had volts applied, and a few years old now -

 

It pre-dates the gear problems, so it might just work if ever volts were applied :2t::bg:

FWIW Si, here's another one you haven't got! ;)

Started life like this

Now looks like this

And it goes like this (please excuse the jerky vid - I still haven't got the hang of camera manipulation!) :us:

Si, you ain't alone with cracked gears! I just got out my 35n2 "gas mechanical" to run a bit and it has the infamous Botchman cracked gears! New ones are about $10 USD but I have to take the outside counterweights off, wheels, and old screwed gears. Then it is "fun" to squeeze on the new gears (which will crack in time) wheels and be sure the counterweights are properly quartered. Looks like the old gas mechanical will reside in the display case from now on. A while back I bought 2 sets of drive train gears(from motor to the driveline) for my 2 Shays...replaced one (2 fifths of Jack Daniels) and look "forward" to working on #4. Maybe I will go to the "other side" before this job gets done! My one Christmas wish is that the "designers & engineers" at BM get their just deserts-being chased by Dan Patch with his pitchfork while they wander around hell! I know they will never see this post, but if they do...the fires down there ain't hot enough for those $%^&*(!!!
Ho Ho Ho Kid, you'll shoot your eye out!

Thanks KB. I'll talk about the turntable on my Updah Creek thread.

Sorry Si, not meaning to hijack your Mogul thread.

" Sorry Si, not meaning to hijack your Mogul thread."

Hi Doug & all :wave:

Just to say, I for 1, don't believe in all this 'hijack this, hijack that' talk.
We're all here to Post pix of cool trains...
...so POST AWAY !
The more Moguls, the merrier, in my opinion.

I even like Woodies 2-2-2-2 red I.C. Mogul No.6 ! ;)
" I AM NOT A NUMBER, I AM A FREE MOGUL "
( I think that's a misquote of Patrick McGoohan BTW )

Those backwoods loggers really ruined that nice paint-job on the Moonlight Express loco. ;)
John, make sure any roaming loggers KEEP AWAY from your lovely North Pole No.5
That kind of finish could have added MILLIONS of sales for Timpos 'Prairie Rocket' !

I'm totaly NUTS over the 'Glover Steam Locomotives' book BTW !
There is more inspiration in that volume, for the potential loco builder/basher than I can possibly deal with !
The quality of the photos, is second to none as well.
What a find !
What a GREAT lil' loco company !!

:moose:

Si.

Lee, I had the plates made up by Narrow Planet and they're now on their general list.

Woodie,  I have had good luck repairing cracked gears.  Rather simple solution that I would also recommend before putting in new - to be cracked - gears.  I slip a peice of aluminum tubing over the gear with a drop of CA.  Then the pressure fit does not cause failure.

WOW, I have to get a set of these, even though I've already done decals to replace the awful Bachmann builder plates on my On30 ten-wheelers. I'm going to order a set for each loco, and swap them out eventually even though the decals aren't half bad looking now. These look amazing!
I just wish they made Baldwin number plates for the smokeboxes...
