    Hi Folks,

    This weeks progress - rebuilt the ash pan - added almost all the air piping - added the air distribution valve under cab - sanding lines are about done - injector pipes are in and connected to injector under cab - added most of the boiler handrail - added most of the brakes - some miscellaneous details here and there - started work on the physics file and exported to the sim for the first time...

    Major items left - is the steam distribution valve block and the steam lines in front of the cab....

    One thing I haven't added before is much of the stoker - plan on adding that - under and in the cab for this one - in a bit more detail...

    Time to start work on the tender I think....

    Hi Folks,


    About four nights work and I have most of the tender fleshed out - four steam locomotives and of course every tender had different bogies/trucks...

    Hi Mark,

    Right back atcha - sir...


    Yeah - LOL - someone has to represent - I think Tim and I are the only two currently active in North American steam now - at least that I'm aware of... Tim is up to his elbows in civil war steam... I've been trying to build a little enthusiasm for the transition era and Open Rails in general - as all my modeling efforts are focused on that - if you build it - they will come ?

    Regards,
    Scott

    Well you two seem to be the "Steam Guru's" at the present time for OR. I seen his work on the Civil war era locos over at ET and it is amazing.

    You are like me, in loving the transition era. I was always a late steam, 1st Gen diesel person myself. I missed out in my town (Being born too late) for experiencing it and it would have been great. With having the Erie & NYSW in town. Then crossing the river into Passaic or Clifton to see the DLW. Then going 3 towns over the see the NYC on the West Shore.

    Well some day after my projects are all done & I have time to play with the tools to try a hand at creating one myself. I would most likely start simple, like a "Dockside" or other small tanker to get my feet wet. Then when comfortable try one that is missing from the library, a EIRE / NYSW Russian Decapod. The old "Bolshevik's" would fit perfect on the Tristate & the LHR 1940.

    Another one if I would attempt if I got to a level where my work didn't look like a 3 year old putting together a Heathkit Ham Radio kit with Elmer's Glue would be a DLW Pocono Class. You know that would be fun to run on the Tristate.

    Hi Folks,

    Getting down to the last details before texturing in earnest - still need a couple valves on the steam lines in front of the cab - some control links to the injector - some blow down valves on the firebox - and animate the bell - she's coming along...

    Every time I see the thread title I think "Cool, someone's doing something from Japan...oh wait, that's Scott's pretty awesome Mikado". Seriously, though, that thing does look pretty impressive

    Hi Folks,

    Thanks - hah - perhaps I did go overboard with being creative in the title...
