Work and Events / Eames Train Brakes - Official Work Thread
« on: July 31, 2015, 07:43:00 PM »
I'm looking forward to #9's return to steam; hope to get up to Alna to see it.

Question:  Will #9 have working Vacuum Brakes??

If so, #9 may be the ONLY operational U.S. steam loco with working 19th-century Vacuum Brakes.

IIRC, only the SR&RL made a complete conversion to Automatic Air Brakes, but #6 did not
get the Air Brakes before going to the K.C. & W.W. & F.

Sandy River & Rangeley Lakes Railroad / SR&RL #16 - Odd Tender Truck
« on: September 01, 2014, 08:33:39 PM »
Photographs of SR&RL #16 in 1932 (and later) show the Front and Rear Tender Trucks are different.
Photographs of #16 in 1924 and before show that she had the original Tender Trucks that she had as a 2-6-0.

Questions are:
#1  When was the front Tender Truck changed?   Maybe after the 1924 wreck at Phillips?
#2  Where did the odd Tender Truck come from?  My guess is #15, that was retired in 1923,

Anyone have more conclusive data or information?????

Museum Discussion / B&SR Tank

Saw the photo of the tank from B&SR 14/21 in the newsletter.
I assume it came from MNG; what's the plans for it?

Bridgton & Saco River Railway / B&SR Coaches #15 & #16
« on: October 26, 2012, 10:25:33 PM »
I'm build models of the B&SR Laconia Coaches #15 and #16, and
need some information of their color scheme for the 1920-25 time period.
All that I've read so far indicated "Dark Green" when new, and
"Coach Green" later in their life.  Is there any record of what would
be correct for 1920-25???

General Discussion / N.E. 2-Foot Show??
« on: November 07, 2010, 08:20:02 PM »
Is there any info on the N.E. 2-Foot Show that was held in Whitman, MA, on the weekend before Thanksgiving?
I went to that show for years, but missed last year as the Mrs. was hospitalized w/ pneumonia.
I'd usually get an announcement in the mail . . .  ???
