For the past
several years, weekends were spent in my garage building a replica of
the Southern Pacific GS-4 Daylight in 1-1/2" scale. During this time
a lot was learned about machining, locomotives and all the sub-systems
required to have a properly running engine. Pictures
were taken during construction and thought that I would share them with
some comments for those
who are interested.
The blogs are
organized in chronological order and not by subject matter. There
may be a couple sections on the same subject due to modifications or something.
Me doing research...
Here's some more
of the Daylight.
