      I bought a 50' boxcar last summer, finally got it to my place this week. Was told it wouldn't work on 4' diameter,  it is a little rough, but some slight modifications will get it there.

      Guess I'm gonna have to run some trains to make page 3 unless others would like to beat me to the punch ?

      Glad to see the CN unit in its new home Rooster. Looks good ! That engine as well as my BNSF SD 70 made a clunking noise from day one. It didn't seem to affect its performance so I didn't do anything about it .

      All good Mike and thanks .....the front axle had missing teeth on the axle gear.  I just flopped the axle so it makes no contact with the worm gear (free floating it ). Essentially making it a 5 axle gear driven unit but it works great! Only issues the crew has noticed is when the toilet flushes the lights go dim. But a turbo plunger has been installed in the cab so all is working fine. 

      BTW ....noted your body mounted 830's which work well but I ended up doing sill mounted Kadees on the other unit I have and very happy with that install.

      Good stuff and still thinking about getting out the fillet knife but not sure.

    • Lots of familiar faces. Be seeing quite a few of them in a couple weeks.

    • The IPP&W had its weekly Saturday operations today. Pictures will appear on the blog linked to the OVGRS web page, within a day or so.

        All went well, and all new track upgrades proved successful.   www.ovgrs.org/

      All recorded this 1st week of summer 2019 but not technically for the technical guys that don't post anything only armchair their comments of the things I SHOULD do not what I AM DOING that they are not ?

       

       

       

       

      "Summer running on the CVRR" .....

       

       

       

       

      The CVRR tested out recently purchased units for the larger runs. The 2nd unit sounds like it needs some work on the front truck (even though I like the sound) but it's all good as I'm still learning and no expert on anything

      Holy crap! I didn't know Rooster had trains too. I thought he was just here for comic relief.

       

      They're not trains..  Amtrak ..
