I wonder if everyone making items with service ribbons on them has permission. Stuff like T-shirts, bumper stickers, coffee cups, etc. I kind of doubt they do because there are lot of companies out there who do stuff like that. If permission is needed then some folks could be in trouble.  I never thought about permission being necessary but i understand it.

Could it be reefer if you mention or allude to in a chilling tone? Grin

I remember reading about your 55n3 some years ago. I liked what you did with it. I do well just to be able to figure out things in On30 much less try something like that. My hats off to you for sticking with it. Being the old timer fan, I like Ron's stuff too.

You can very carefully bend the little curved wires holding the chains but if you do that more than a time or two they break. If you bend them out, you can unhook the links and move them up a link or two. Out of three cars, I broke two of the hooks doing it that way so be warned. I ended up just super gluing them after I put real logs on them.
I haven't done anything with them empty so I don't know how to handle the chains there.

I see that now. They became known as "Rubber Stamp Trolleys"
Apparently this book "Curved-side cars, built by Cincinnati Car Company" by Richard Wagner in 1965 has construction photos and schematic drawings. The Amazon review evens mentions her great grandfather.

Are you talking about the current version of the street cars they are using or the old ones?  When I Googled Cincinnati curved side streetcar, it show pics of both.

In reading the report, I couldn't help but think of the space shuttle where a simple thing like an o-ring malfunction caused a major disaster.

The report about the 1995 incident is quite an eye opener. It seems there were a lot of screw ups by the railroad. It makes a good point about the dwindling supply of people with first hand knowledge of steam locomotive care and maintenance. I never would have thought that the boilers had to be thoroughly cleaned out like that every month. It never occurred to me that they had to treat the water. There are so many things they have to check before they even take off.

I can see the pics on the other threads just not this one. I wonder why.

That's weird. I can't see any of your pics on the post even from back in March. It's just blank space, no image tags or anything. Since the others are commenting, they must be able to see them.

Very interesting read. Thanks.

Is it my computer? I can't see any pictures.

That was back in 2005. People were talking about the 4-4-0 and how they didn't think it would pull very well so I had to make a point.

Jeff - Water levels in the boiler makes sense and something I hadn't considered.

I was mistaken. It was 29 cars plus the caboose. Here's a picture.
