Re: Who should I contact to get a large format copy of a published photo of coach 6705?

I'd suggest you contact Laura Katz Smith, curator of the Railroad History Archives at UConn in Storrs, CT. I'm sure she'd be happy to work with you to obtain whatever photos are in the collection if they are not already digitized. Laura's contact info is: laura.katz.smith@uconn.edu Phone: (860)486-2...

The folder contains photos from 2015 when I was allowed access to the Meadowlark interior. It also contains some exterior shots by me and a couple fro...

Re: NH S-1 & 2 Cab

I received my first 3D print of a flat five piece cab. All of the details were printed successfully due to proper 3D print orientation. Some striations are visible on faces that are supposed to be smooth and flat. I suspect this is due to the current state of 3D printing in Shapeways Frosted Extreme...

Re: NH S-1 & 2 Cab

I had to work from photographs for the sides and front because I, like you Jim, could not find any drawings for them. I used Photoshop perspective crop to square things up, if not square, then scale them to match the dimensions of the back I designed from the drawing in the Shoreliner. Then I could ...

Re: NH S-1 & 2 Cab

I clearly stated in the product description that it was for display only and that the final product would be printed differently to improve the finish on the visible surfaces. I also offered it for sale if anyone wanted to print one.  It appears that Jim wanted to have two printed to get an early lo...

RWC 61-NO

<r>I was fortunate to have purchased a pair of RWC 61-NO trucks on EBay a number of years ago for one of the NHRHTA CJ grill car kits I started many years ago.  I'm assuming they were some extras from the RWC SS brass car sets.  I think they compare well to the photo in Randall Vol. 10 page 70.  I d...

Diaphragm Buffer

Randy,
Sorry, I don't have a mold to cast any.  The buffer was just built up using laminated pieces of styrene filed to shape with the hole cut into it. Of course the cut lever the hole and the coupler don't line up too well.
