Petey, I didn't question or mention anything about how it is powered, but said the speed record plack still isn't there.
 The plack stating the record and the date of it isn't on the loco. Maybe the LNER blue model doesn't have it because the run wasn't made till British rails merged a lot of the rail lines.

John, I am certain that it would but am afraid of the little people and what they would do. Last time I upset them they went of a building spree and did this. It took me weeks of negotiations with them to get back to normal.
* Buildings atop of buildings. They built on the Frankford turntable, and on the Roundhouse roof. It was horrible.

As you can see by the first photo, I couldn't get anything done. second photo. They were building on the main lines and in the streets. It was chaos. They built 2 working brewery's right on the mainlines. They were working brewery's
and everybody including the dogs and cats, even the mice and rat, were drunk. They drank like Englishmen in their favorite Pub that was about to close.

*** Rivarossi Southern Pacific 4-4-2 #3000, version with hand rails on the cab roof.
** A engine that I got Sunday at the Wayne NJ train Show.
 I wondered why the price was low. For $30. you cant buy parts for this engine for $30.  
 A Rivarossi Southern Pacific Atlantic #3000. Made in 1952 to 1961. Sold by Lionel and Polk Hobbies. I have it in a 1957 AHC catalog and it cost $32.50.
 
frank
 
 Found this at a train show for $30.The reason for selling this complete version of a original issue 4-4-2, 1952 to 1955 version, with the handrails on the cab roof, for $30. was a problem with a driver. One was broken off. It could use new drivers ever if they need some difficult repair work and requartering. By this I mean I can redrill the axel opening to match the original Rivarossi axel, they quarter the wheels properly.

Frank,
Nice piece! Not bad on price, either! Question, the drivers, what size axles? I may be able to help, they look to be like 80 inch diameter.....BUT to work, I'd need to know what the axle diameter is....IF you want to run it that is, I might have something..... Spoked drivers, that is!

John; The driver is very large. Scale about 7', 84". Measures in 100ths of a inch is .9875  . axel larger that standard Rivarossi. No standard size used here. This is a OO engine that like English locomotives run on HO track. Axel is very close to 1/10 of a inch or .03mm.  
 
A wheel that has a smaller axel hole can be drilled out ot allow if Rivarossi axel to fit. So any large enough wheel with .03mm axel hole or less will do.

Frank, I haven't had time to look yet, I'm working on it. Me and mine celebrated our 9th year of marriage yesterday so, was not home for the whole day...... And, was a good day, but now, its time to spend a bit of time in the shop.....I'll be sure to let you know what I have/find in the next day or so. Question, do you have a "quartering" tool? AS I may have just the drivers to be pressed onto the Riv axles. Let me know!

Frank,
Thanks for the Happy happy... it was too!
 
As for the quartering, yes that's right they won't fit or quarter Rossi drivers so yeah, you'd be right on the try and retry to get it right at the quartering....
 
As I may have drivers, I just don't know what axles I have. whats the gear like?
Same as a regular Rossi gear?

*  In the middle of all of what is going on, A locomotive has returned from the Saylorsburg Engine facility. It went there for a repainting, at the Saylorsburg roundhouse.  
* Back from the paint shop, looking like new, is the CNJ K1 class 4-8-0s Mastodon camelback #472. It is seen here in front of the Bergen Point Station.
* The painter is my son Stephen.

Frank,
You got a single set of the decal emblems from that 4-8-0 for CNJ? I need 2 emblems to fit on a Boxcab diesel and I really hate to spend the money in a whole pack that I'll never truly use the whole pack.....Let me know! I need them for a gift I'm going to custom paint!

Hi John. I don't have a list of parts because like you I may have mostly what I need, but don't know where they are. I am sure I have some spare liberty decals or rub on's somewhere with my decals, which I do know where most are.  Mostly looking for the tender for the Winton, with the right trucks would be nice. Still looking for some photos of it. Of course I need some large drivers for the Rivarossi SP 4-4-2. There are other things but I think I have something that will work.
