    Jeff, When can we expect to see some On30 pics from you?


    Soon...I hope. I am working on something right now that I will post once I get the bugs all worked out, then I will move on to a couple locomotives I am working on.

    thanks for all the good information everyone.

    Geezer,

    I love that bear trap and plow. Looks a lot like the static display they have up in Idaho Springs, CO. That's an old CS loco that I hope they will restore an put on the Georgetown loop someday. Next time I'm up there I'll have to get some pics, I just love those 10 wheelers.

    This is from a long time ago with a webcam, but it is my attempt to "Easternize" a Bachmann 2-6-0.



    The boiler is a smaller 1" dia. The smoke box front is a 42" "climax" from Grandt Line. Other brass parts are from the Backshop (back when you could count on them). I also shortened the tender. Wish I still had it.

    Jeff, When can we expect to see some On30 pics from you?

    I forgot, Jeff....Instead of waitin for me to post pictures, just go to

    Dallas's site and check out the resis stacks he has...I have used

    them for various projects and like them a lot.

    No affiliation there, he is a member and has some really neat stuff!

    Thanks for the compliment on the Mogul!

    Hi Jeff - If I can find them this weekend, I will post pictures of some "Cast" resin stacks to see what you think.

    Here is a picture of my mogul with a plow and a "Bear Trap" that Mike B mentioned.....



    just for reference.....

    I was wondering why I was feeling a mist of water on my face when I was riding in one of the open cars on the Silverton.

    Jeff,

    That sounds possible. Here in Colorado the C&S used the Bear Trap stack to help prevent fires. It also had a wire top to reduce the hot cinder problem. The Durango and Silverton RR uses a water mister system on the stack to prevent the hot cinders. When it comes to steam, anything goes!

    I am modeling Appalachian mount coal hauling. I figured that the big balloon stacks were for wood burners but I was reading through the Mann Creek Ry book and there was something in there that they had to convert a second hand shay they picked up to a balloon stack to control fires through the park they ran through. So I figured that if they had a rod engine they might have had to do the same thing.

    Jeff- I forgot to add that the Nesmith stack, and the Congdon stack in that DSP&P photo, are usually earlier era wood-burning types, rather than later coal or oil-burning engines with a simple diamond stack (like in the link I sent). But many engines lasted a long time and had many modifications done to them over the years, so I see no reason why you can't have a 2-6-0 with a Nesmith, unless you're sticking to a specific prototype.

    Jeff- being from the "Rocky Mtns" like Mike B, I have to say that the pic from Bill U. is pretty cool. The DSP&P had some great engines, and that photo shows a very distinctive one with that big honkin' plow. I don't remember what/where you're modeling, but hey- it's your railroad ! Who's to say that a 2-6-0 didn't have a Nesmith stack? Here's a link to another NG article and photos showing similar engines, with flanged domes, and also a plow. http://www.museumofidaho.org/LocalItems/chap12.php

    That pic is from Como on the Denver South Park and Pacific (DSP&P). The stack you are looking at is correct for the model.

    How about the Plow? Now that would add some character to your engine!

    I was thinking about changing to flanged domes. Thanks for the picture.

    http://www.railwayeng.com/dspp/jpg/como59e.jpg might help you out. The stack is appropriate for 2-6-0 with flanged dome rather than round top domes.
