I emailed them with photos of number plates, asking if
they could make those. They replied and said they could make them any size I
wanted as they had the art for those already done.
I will be placing an
order for a full set of builder plates in metal for each of my ten-wheelers and
number plates, too.

Hi Guys :wave:

Well, that eMail to the Chief at P&O musta done the trick !

My $2 buck gear set from Sumting-Wong Precision Plastic ARRIVED !!

Slight delay, bit choppy round the Cape Ol' Bean.

Me Mogul was put back together, but on first glance from what I can remember of the busted gear wheel...

...it does look like the Sumting-Wong job-lot might just have a suitable replacement ! :bg:

:moose:

More news at 10

Howdy Woodie :cb:

No sweat !

I've got a team of Oompa Loompas workin' on it RIGHT NOW ! ...
... I should check back & see that they ain't just lounging around eatin' chocolate bars !!

Chief Freerails philosopher Jose, said there's no hurry to trash it even more ...
... I have been 'eyeing her up' though, with a bit of help from the FANTASTIC 'Glover Steam Locomotives' book !

Have also been having anxiety-dreams about RIVETS !
But ...
... Dave the postman delivered a new tool the other day, which looks pretty handy !

Not sure what the proper name for it is.
But it is used for marking-out starter-holes for leather-stitching.
It is a 3/4" wheel, with 2mm spaced blunt-points on it ( sort of a small useless pizza-cutter ).
Run along a rule, on thin styrene with a cutting-mat behind, it produces a pretty nice line of rivets !

Even MORE news at 10 !

( better make that 11 )

Howdy Mogul bashers :mex:


In reading my latest book buy, I came to realize that the 2-6-2T was a VERY popular loco for rough logging & mining track.

'Sonora Narrow Gauge' describes & pictures 2-6-2Ts by ALCo. Baldwin and others I believe, which were the favored type in mountainous twisty Mexican mining operations.

From the Baldwin catalogue, an interesting description of 'the theory'.



There were of course other locos used, but the 2-6-2T which had previously escaped my attention, is clearly highlighted as a operational success.

I haven't had time to go back to the excellent 'Glover Steam Locomotives' book yet, to see what similar 'tanks' they made, but will do so soon enough.

Entering 2-6-2T into Google brings back ALL SORTS of interesting results, from right around the globe, the UKs L&B narrow gauge, the Victorian Railways similar locos, & of course lots of U.S. Baldwins, ALCo.s etc. etc.

I like steam locos of course !
But don't really actually KNOW much about them, in the way some do.
However, the shear range of size, proportions, wheel dia.s & other details, means there TRULY IS a prototype for everything !!

It is inspiring my Bachmann Mogul BASH in the right direction in any case ! :bg:

:moose:

Si.

Just a quick question, for those who 'know' about these things.

In terms of 'volume'...
...what do you guys think the 'ballpark figure' (or ratio -:-) is generally likely to be, between the water-capacity & fuel-capacity of yer average steam loco.

OK, perhaps a difficult question.
No prizes for down to the last rivet. ;)
But thereabouts.

I look at the famous Mich. Cal. oil-Shay for example & see 2 distinct 'volumes' for oil & water.
I guess the 'volumes' needed for the same fuel, in either oil, coal. or wood, are also very different.

Just wondered what peoples think.

:bg:

Si, as I recall (or marimba) Backwoods Miniatures has a "conversion" kit for a Botchmann 2-6-0 or 2-8-0 which has this look. Yes, I know it's in wimpy O scale but these locos are big enough for 1:35 that all you REALLY need is a larger cab and some hombres in the cab and there ya go.
However, a crafty fox like yourself can make it from scratch with the help of a "Kephart-O-Matic", etc. rivet maker or just an old clock gear.

The W C Greene you mention is not the droid you seek.
