Message is just as the title says. I'm trying to track down photos of the rare 0-6-4 Forney type.
Photos or plans? We're confused, as David says.I'm trying to track down photos of the rare 0-6-4 Forney type.
You can check with your local boiler inspector, but here in Maryland they do not require a license for small boilers. We've had conversations with them when running live steamers at public events. I do not know what the minimum size would be before you need a current boiler certificate. I don't think you need a license.Does any one know if i have to get a hobby boilers license?
So, there were two Torch Lakes. One is the locomotive named Torch Lake, while the other was an 0-6-4 Forney type that may have originated at Godchaux Sugar, before being sent to the Torch Lake Railroad, which I believe has no connection with the Mason Bogie, as that one was standard gauge, while the one I'm looking for was 3 foot narrow gauge.Photos or plans? We're confused, as David says.
Torch Lake was/is a Mason Bogie. There's a comment here: Re: NNG: Greenfield Village Mason-Bogie
"On page 76 of the Mason Locomotive Works book by Arthur W Wallace are drawings of the original version of this locomotive."
The crain website on the South Park line has lots of drawings of similar Mason Bogies by David Fletcher.

I'll ask him if he ever drew Torch Lake.
