Geared Steam Engines (1 1/2" scale models)
« on: December 24, 2009, 03:22:11 PM »
I though many of you might like to browse a sight that is dedicated to designing and building two 1 1/2" scale geared logging locomotives.

Nelson Riedel's fabulous site details how he designed and built a Shay engine based on the Cass geared loco. He is also almost done with a Heisler engine #6 from the Cass Senic Railway.

Many pictures and techniques are disscused in building both engines. A very interesting read.

Bring a coffee, you may be there a while. Nelson's Locomotive Works

Enjoy. If your not in railroading. He has some very nice shop pictures.

BTW, I have the castings to build one of these engines. Perhaps if I get my $h@t together I can build one too.  :med:

You can't fix "STUPID".
