I am building a layout here, I might seem that all I do is build Steam Engines but, their is a modest model railroad being built too.
Here is part one;
http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=37052

This is the current track plan;


For the last two years I have been focused on build two detailed models of 1870's Moguls that are currently hard at work in 1886. The Girls works hard but are well maintained. I am using the wagon top Moguls of the Virginia and Truckee RR as my prototype drawing heavily from Engine number 4 and 13. In build these two engines I have been relying on 3D drawing and printing on a backbone of conventional model making techniques.

Let the fun continue...

Hi Bob!

The Sequel, eh?

In answer to your question you asked in Part 1 about the side rods:

Siderods:

I suppose the printed side rods are oversized, but the detail sure looks nice. The etched side rods will give you more clearance and still look pretty good in the process.

Screws/Bolts:

I'm not able to visualize what those will become in my mind. I will have to wait until you've got some installed so I can actually see the finished parts.

The Moguls look to be quite involved projects!

Hagan reminded me that I'm suppose to solder two of the side rods together. So I've now successfully learned to sweat solder. This is how they look now;


Comments?

Well I guess the photo-etched drive rods didn't get a whole lot of support I went to mime.

You might notice that the far side still has the FUD prototype in place that is because I destroyed the brass one. Had it wrap around the drill as iwas trying to drill out hole for the pin screw.


So I've ordered a reprint and will worked on other things while screws and parts show up. So I finished the 3 mm's shaft holder and started machining the cylinders yoke. In the below pictures the blue plastic piece shows how the casting comes and the Brass has been milled. Yes milled. I used my milling machine. I fell sorry for anybody having to do this with fills;




That's all for now guys,

Bob

Indeed he did! Those look fantastic!

That Håkan guy is pretty salty at this model railroad thing.
