Great stuff! The models are great but the vertical boiler "John Hancock" is even cooler. What a funky machine.

Oh, btw, where is the daily update? :)

Nice thread Herb, thanks! Seeing a Shay up close is really an eye opener. What a monster. Those repairs say a lot too, the cylinder casting is probably iron, and most 'repair men' these days wouldn't even consider welding it. I've done it and know how, but I'm an old coot.
Thanks for the pic of the Burro too. I want one on my layout, but kits are just too expensive. It will have to be a scratch build. If you get any more pics, please post.

The Shay came from Cass. It was basically a trade for WM 6. We had a good visit, despite the nasty weather. I noted that all the "big" steam was in the old car shop building across from the roundhouse. Really tough to do any decent photography. Among the locos are the C&O streamlined 4-6-4, the first USRA Mike (B&O 4500), a B&O P-7 Pacific, and a C&O Allegheny 2-6-6-6. Missing is the C&O H-6 2-6-6-2, now being rebuilt for the WM Scenic RR in Ridgely, WV. Scheduled debut - late July.

Some more whether you are ready or not---



Did I post that one already?



wood beam truck


Another wood beam truck

,



Another favorite of mine--always intended to build a model, always talked myself out of it as never had a place to run it as it wouldn't 'fit in'. At this point in time, injectors for locos were still in the future--so note piston boiler feed pump on each rear wheel. Also, tender trucks were growing springs by this date







This time, a Camelback






Chute, to scoop water into tenderfrom troughs between the rails on the fly



Back to the real oldies








First forced draft, I think








 



Time to quit--making the same mistakes three times in a row

Wow...the little Pioneer made me remember my little Kemtron HO C&NW 4-2-0 Pioneer with the Lindsay motor driving the tender. Man, I wish that I still had that one...since I was about 12 or 13, it was put together with either Duco or Goo but ran like a scalded ape!
The tiny B&O "stagecoach" double-decker is super cool! Imagine riding on the top level while doing a fast 15 MPH!!! I bet it scared the bejeezes out of the riders.

Woodie
