the Phoenix has 2 cylinders on each side set at 90 deg so there's no high centering. the differential between the 2 tracks is the steam Tee in the smokebox. the front skis or wheels do the steering, no power turn.The Phoenix Log Hauler has 2 steam engines, one on each side driving that individual track . . . am I correct?
If that's the case, when turning, is one engine ran faster, and the other ran slower, producing a power turn?
26- 1 1/2" tubesMarv; GREAT PROGRESS! You have come a long way since I saw the smokebox door number plate at Rock River. Keep us posted on the good work. What size tubes are in the boiler and how many? Thanks , 3/4 A
Your tracks look a little tired. Did they start out life as something else, or is that just the picture ?
Warren Bellinger has already contacted me about doing that, Ceder Falls, Ia. Aug 15-17Any chance you'd be interested in hauling to Iowa this coming August for the National Modeler Show? It sure would turn a lot of heads! Nice build!
