Really unfortunate. The prospects for survival for NWSL in any form are now obviously grim.

Very nice!  Great to see your layout (turnouts included... :-) ).  On the portions with completed scenery, you nicely capture the arid but mountainous feeling.
Thanks so much for sharing!!

Justin, Aprox 30 odd years ago I picked up a Westside #50 with a broken drive axel. It was fairly cheap and took a chance that someday I could do something with it. After sitting on my workbench for a couple years I was looking at it and realizied I had the parts to make it run again - looked into my box of drive parts and found a NWSL flea that I purchased for some long forgotton project, it was for HO standard gauge with the exact size wheels and when I regauged it to HOn3 the standard gauge sholdered axels matched up with perfect spacing for the counterweights. I then added as much weight as would fit and it runs fantastic but fairly slow. It was long ago and cannot remember what exactly I used but I have never had a project go together so well since.

Re: Need help with Westside Models #50 diesel upgrade.

Justin
 

I want to thank everyone for the replies so far. I have contacted the Locodoc guy and he said I could use an idler style gearbox with an FM1220 motor from NWSL. It doesn't sound like he has a kit for it as on the site it says it would be part of a custom kit. If he had a kit I feel like he would have just told me about it, but then again I asked for general advice using NWSL parts. I'll have to send him another email later and inquire if he does have anything. The problem with the NWSL gearbox is really this 3mm axle on the locomotive. While they make a 3mm idler gearbox kit, I'd be better off with a 2mm axle upgrade. Thanks to you guys I know the size of the wheels I would need, but I'm not sure what to do about the counter weights if they do indeed screw onto the axle. All I know is the weights are stuck on there something fierce and I don't want to break them. I like the flea idea that Richard proposed, but where would I even find one? Well actually, I'd need two as I have two of these locomotives. I really don't want to get rid of them, as they are custom detailed etc.

There's not much that I can really add to what Mark has said.  yes, you'll struggle to rewheel the existing axles, because not only will you have to requarter it, but the wheels are threaded and screwed on to the axles, which means that any new wheels will also need to be threaded.  And yes, you can eliminate the spur gears - and the major noise factor from them - by iusing a new motor (Mash 1620, if you can get one, fits easily) with a longer shaft, mounting the worm, once you've removed it from the spur gear, on it, and tweaking the motor mount to get the work engaged with the axle spur.  You'll be the other side of the axle, so the motor terminals will need to be reversed to get the thing to go the correct way.  

I added proper 4-wheel pickups after having dicked with track sliders.  You'll need one or the other, for sure. Or just find an Erie loco.  Not perfect, but more easily fixable than is the Westside.

The Erie really needs a belt drive to replace the noisy spur gears, but having done that and a new motor (Mash 10/20, I think) its was more than quiet enough for sound - and lights - and pulls about twice as much as the Westside will.

Nice Steve,

You've made huge progress is the time I've only redone my wiring - great stuff. Shaking not a problem but consider a monopod. Far more flexible than a tripod and you'll lose most of that movement.

Looks great and that K-28 is a game old puller.

Re: Grandt Line

 

Dave - Quite an experience you've had in the aviation world.  That explains the little float plane in your first image.  How did you come up with that one? Kit, kitbash, scratch? 
All your images are keepers although after I downloaded them I shifted the saturation down a bit. Lots of good info in there.
What kind of die maker experience have you had?  Any of it on plastic mold tooling?  You are just the kind who could experiment with DIY approaches using resources available today.  The problem, of course, is having the motivation to charge off  into something new at our age.  I have Sherline tools also and can see how making even a small mold can be a big project.  In the 8th decade of our lives new projects have to be approached with a lot of caution.  People ask me why I don't mess around with 3d printing or learning how to do 3d CAD (again). My answer is usually that I don't have time in my life for another hobby and can't go more than a day without a full night's sleep (10 hours) behind me. 
I have already abandoned one hobby (building another hot rod) by trading the project for a finished car.   And another recreational pursuit because it required me to make too many long distance trips away from home.  So the layout building has none of those conflicts.  And I do it just for the fun of it knowing it'll all go to some cheap disposal once I "fall down the stairs" to borrow an expression used by an old, now gone, Bonneville racing friend.
BTW, which one of the GL parts was critical to the kits you've sold.  Did you say it was the Russell log bunks?  I am tempted to look at them with a creative eye, not that it will do either of us any good. .......... Ed Weldon

Re: Odds and Ends

Hi Larry,

Glad to hear jig arrived. It served me well. Made 6 turnouts with it and everyone worked great! Just take your time. At first I had a little issue with the soldering but realized that I did not clean the PCB ties well enough. Also use just a hair of flux.

  After around 30 years in Dallas and getting older we could not take the heat there and the $400 a month electric bill to keep cool. Now in Minnesota we have 4 beautiful seasons and $80 a month electric bill and the house is twice the size!

  Its all good. When you get ot the point of building that new railroad send me a picture or two!

Regards and thank you.

Alan
