Hi Ben

Gregg said you would probably need a 5HP Briggs, Honda or similar motor to power. The AME 422 Bogies I think are for 5 inch and the nose cone that we have is 7 1/4.  You would probably have to make bogies to suit.

Yes the Grafton Bridge opened in 1932.  The page has been on since 2007.  I have been going to take it off, but it still gets a bit of interest.

Regards

Hi Debbie,
Okay, thanks very much. I forgot about the gauges (whoops Embarassed). Is there anyone you would suggest for making bogies Question. I can't do them myself.

Hi Debbie,
Please keep the site up. I go there at times, as I'd like to buy some rollingstock (just not sure which yet). It looks like the 42 will be a later project. I'd still love a unit Very HappyExclamation.

Still working on the Fibreglass RU and FO Coaches.  We're planning on them being available at the convention. That way people can have a good look at them.  Been busy working on some HO Loco's.  Smile

Hi Ben

Just put the 41 Class Diesel Body Kit out.  It's taken off the patterns of the old workshop 5 (with permission).  It includes all 3 versions.  Also may be some rollingstock at a later date.

Gregg's working on the fibreglass masters in between casting our own stuff and trying to sort out the HO stuff.  

Cheers

Hi Debbie,
Cool. Thanks Very Happy for that. A 41 should be popular. While I don't model HO anyone, I'm sure it will have good sales.

Hi all.

After various titles in model engineering books, tooling tricks etc.

Starting a build on a 7.1/4" Lil Lima loco.

Hi G41.

If you are looking at building yourself, may I suggest that you have a look at the range of books that where written by Kozo Hiraoka.


http://www.craftsmanshipmuseum.com/Hiraoka.htm

They go into great detail about tips and tricks for building an engine.

This is also a great book - So You Want to Build a Live Steam Locomotive

Both I believe are available from Plough Book Sales - http://www.ploughbooksales.com.au/
