Doug's L&S* 4-6-0 is GREAT! Wunnerfull! The Heisler photo was sent to me by Mr. Heisler, a real descendant of the man who designed the loco! I have thought about this one for quite some time. I have the parts for 2 old Rivarossi HO Heislers which would work, the newer Bachmann On30 Heisler would be more suitable...but the price! Yikes, that's some serious dinero to lay out for something to whack apart! But still....

*Ludlow & Southern (I believe), an obscure road out in Nevada. The photo is from Myrick's "Railroads of Nevada", I forgot which volume however.
Si-another set of books you might love..but dey ain't cheep!

Vol 2 Woodie and I picked up my copy for £25 post paid before starting the conversion. Superb book with so many great photos of unusual and "normal" locos and well worth the money. Hard back but second hand (like mime), it's available in the States for just $13 which must be a bargain.

DAMN IT . . . I HATE FREERAILS !


For so many EXCELLENT book recs. ! :f:


I just got David F. Myricks - ' New Mexico's Railroads ' in fact !


I guess this, if not already reviewed, needs the F.R. treatment.


Along with ' Little Railways Of The World ' of course. :bg:


I'm outta here . . .


Gone to sniff MEK and struggle with microscopic MiniArt !! . . .


:moose:

I just ordered myself an On30 Heisler from TheFavoriteSpot, with shipping it's only about $200.  Hefty price but it runs beautifully.

Edit: I just thought of another reason to get the Bachmann:  Their Whitcomb sound module should work in it if you want it to SOUND like a diesel too!  :D

Went to a train show today and found 3 Moguls for $45 each.  Don't really need one but now contemplating going back.  Is this a good price?  Could probably get all three for $100.

I would say..."go back and buy them for 100 bucks!" If just for kitbash fodder, they're worth it!

Don't really need one but....
 ... let's go and buy all three (just in case).
That's how we end with whole houses full of unbuilt models.

  When you have to many 2-6-0s, you could do what the Osete Railway in Brazil did and convert a Standard gauge 3 Truck Shay to a SHAY-Meyer 2-6-0+0-6-2T for operation on their 1 meter gauge line.
  The other two SHAY's were rebuilt into Pacific's, one is in a museum in Brazil.
