    Hello all, It's been quite a few years since I've frequented this board, but I recently picked up an Aster/Accucraft Light Mikado kit and I'd like to document the build here. It will receive an almost entirely new chassis (saving only the driver wheelsets), a coal fired boiler, and a number of...

    I'm looking to finally fire up my Accucraft live steam Lilly Belle after all these years. I'm not much for chasing after engines, especially on a garden railroad, so I'm thinking of adding a RC servo to at least control the J-bar. Has anyone done this or something similar? I've heard good...

    Hello, Can someone help me with taking apart an Accucraft K-36. I am looking to get into the front of the smoke box and need to know if it just pulls off or is there another way it comes off. Bill

    I know this is the live steam category, but this should be very similar to an electric Cab-Forward that we have. Does anyone know how to separate the super structure from the base that holds the wheels and driving rods? I asked Cliff over at Accucraft, and he said he doesn't know. And we have...

    I built PCR #8 from an Accucraft Ruby kit in 2004. After 10 years and a lot of running (miles, literally), it was showing wear in the pistons (leakage) and just not running like it should. I decided to re-build it using the 1/2" replacement cylinders and other upgrades including a pop safety...
