    Sams semi automatic L&P coupler
    Neat.  I had never heard of a SAMS coupler before today.
    Looking at these pictures:
    Why not start with a commercial casting such as those available from Ozark Miniatures?    That, plus the pictures over at Narrow Gauge Discussion shoul...  more

    Hey folks, 
    This may be a long shot but I am looking for plans for this pilot plow that was mounted on the Southern Pacific Narrow Gauge engines. I have searched everywhere I can think of with no luck. I am hoping someone has some NG gazettes lying a...  more

    While I am waiting for some cooler weather to try my Ford Canyon Red on the Emily coach, I dragged out a "kit" for a 26' coach made originally by Ted Stinson of Northeast Narrow Gauge. Ted passed a few years ago, and my kit must be 10-15 yrs old. He was t...  more

    Building 1:20.3 narrow gauge CP Huntington Single
    So I almost have her bolted together.  The smoke box still needs to be secured.  With lead weight in the smoke box and boiler it was time for her maiden run.  Put her on the track and she did the full outer loop no problem.  Went in to...  more
    Track longevity by brand
    Rick Marty said:
    I got about 500 feet of replacement ties from AMS ( for code 250 narrow gauge) in 2014 because the originals from 2005 had all gone to crap.  We moved in 2015 and I started the new RR in 2016 and put the new ties on the rail an...  more
