I got this Zephyr from Bob Thon, of Roberts Lines, you may remember his old ads in GR. He had a few leftover pieces that needed some work and I HAD to have it!  You know how it is. Saw pix of it years ago(89) and wanted one then.  Here's some pix and a link to a video of it's first run. U-joint loosened up, but it's now fixed, if the weather comes back, I'll run it some more. 70's here today, 30's on Sunday, sigh.....



Here's the youTube video.

Here's some more pix of the Zephyr, had some requests.  Has a big Pittman motor in the loco and one in the rear of the observation car. I had disconnected the rear, but it put a big strain on the front u-joint, which came loose. Now have it hooked back up, been to cold to run it though.  Motor drives thru a u-joint to the big black gear case, out of the bottom of it is shafts to the small gearoxes on each axle.



I have fixed the center car to raise it up a bit and now have the nameplates on the side of the loco also.
