  2. Live Steam
    Selling my Accucraft live steam T-12. Has next to no runtime on it runs like a Swiss watch. Added radio control as well as full LED lighting. Hand pump in tender with quick connect fittings. Only reason for selling is its too fast for my small layout. Have factory packaging as well. 2800usd plus...
    $2,800 USD
  3. Model Making
    This is an sm32 tender I made from basswood planks and a couple 3D printed parts. I found a flat car file on thingiverse and sent it to a friend for printing. The water tank on the back came with my heavily modified Mamod. It was used as a battery box for RC by the previous owner. I plan on...
  4. Live Steam
    I'm looking for advice on what points to use where on my layout. My primary equipment will be 1:20.3 narrow gauge stuff. Eventually a K-37 with some J&S coaches. But I want to accommodate every possibility in case I have guests or my interests expand, say a big boy or really long coaches. What...

    I am seriously considering upgrading my Mamod to 45mm. I have had trouble getting it to run on Lionel 0-27 track. I knew going in that this radius of track was way too tight but I was just going to try it to see if it would work. A family member found a whole LGB starter set at a yard sale for...
  6. Track, Trestles, Bridges and Roadbed
    I am expecting(Hoping) to get my first large engine this year when Accucraft makes deliveries of the C-18. As those engines will require more space than my indoor loop will allow, I had better snatch up that permitted land my wife agreed to before I do something to upset her. Last year I...
  7. Large Scale Events
    Unless my search function is malfunctioning, I see no talk about the upcoming NG convention in Hickory, NC. I'll be there Wednesday only, driving up in the morning, returning home at night. I'll have a sales table, look for Southern Steam Trains, at table J8. A variety of NG items. Hope to...
  8. Whimsical and Fun Trains
    This video looked cute and gave me a chuckle. Good for the imagination. I may be tempted to model the Red Arrow some day.
  9. New Members Forum
    Hello all, I skipped this step a few months ago when I first joined the forum. But I figure my first anniversary (a little late) of large scale is a good chance to get it done. I've had a Wilesco Model steam roller since 8th grade, used it through high school to do a steam unit for the middle...
  10. News
    I have a lot of LGB locomotives and cars, German and Swiss models mostly. I also have a lot of track, switches, etc., and several G-Scale buildings, German and Swiss. I WANT TO GIVE ALL OF THIS TO A G-SCALE club or group or individual. I live in Iowa, and the trains all belonged to my late...
  11. Live Steam
    hey everyone, first off, thanks for all the newbie threads on live steam. I've been thinking again about getting a live steam loco for my front yard battery powered loop but have a couple questions. First, will my 7000 ft elevation here in Flagstaff affect the opperation of the live steam...
  12. Live Steam
    To put it lightly, this past weekend was MOMENTOUS!. Not only did the Harbor Springs Area Historical Society and the Michigan Small Scale Live Steamers (MSSLS, LLC) celebrate the 178th anniversary of the birth of Ephraim Shay, the Historical Society announced that the famous Ephraim Shay...
  13. Live Steam
    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...

    I have an Aster Jumbo for sale at $2,200. I also have 4 near mint J & M Great Northern 3 axle coaches which are also for sale and which were pulled by the Jumbo in real life. Coaches are $4,000 and will be sold only as a group. The locomotive and coaches will be available for inspection at...
  15. Live Steam
    Hey gang, Managed to score a 1:29 AML switcher on teh EBays and it finally got here today. Allegedly it sat in a glass case of a NJ hobby shop for years without ever having been run. Judging from the dust on her and the lack of any oil anywhere, I'd say that's the truth. It didn't spoil her...
  16. Live Steam
    I had fouled up the FEF by running her low on water and overheated the boiler. Ryan took care of that and this video is result of his fine work. As I said earlier, my days of videoing while running the big engines is over ,except stionary cameras. Too much to look after and too much money...
  17. Live Steam
    I just got a Ruby #5. The first runs did not go so well, turns out I had a stuck pressure relief valve, so I got the pressure way too high. Accucraft quickly sent me a new valve, and all is well, though I am still running it with the dome off to watch the valve. 8^) My main problem is that...
