Thanks Dusty!  Perfect!!

Actually, I am going to modify it to be 0556, later SN, latter U.S.A. 90853 (in service on the White Pass & Yukon Route).

Thanks again!

Re: Missing instructions

This kit might also be the best start/stand in for a 0573. Based on page 65 of the Grandt caboose book 0573 had side windows high on the sides. Brake reservoir outboard of intermediate sills. Cupola looks to set a bit higher than kit. Base molding may be causing an optical delusion with regard to cupola height. Bent coupler lift rods may indicate wood buffers.

For what it's worth.

Missing instructions

Howdy!

Does anyone have access to a PSC D&RGW short caboose kit?  Specifically, for kit number 10674.1, #0577, #0578...  Though, I doubt if they had different instructions for the different numbers.  Anyway, I cannot find the instructions for my kit, so would someone be able to scan or copy them and emailtsnail-mail to me?

Thanks!

Has any progress been made with drawings of this cabinet? If not, I
have some time and could take a stab at it from the info and photos I've
received.

Bill Lugg


I have not made any drawings, however, I have cut out the wood to make 3 drawers.
things have gone "busy" around here and I had to set the project aside.
as soon as I can get back on it, i'll assemble what I have ready and post a pic or two.

in an attempt to minimize cost, I am using "scraps" I have on hand.
IF my drawers turn out as I want them to, i'll gather more material and finish the whole project, drawers and cabinet.

I will try to make progress on the thing this weekend.

more to follow.

Re: Kadee N scale couplers.

asandrini
 

Keith and Dale split the company with Kadee keeping all HO,  O and G gauges, while Microtrains concentrating on HOn3, N and Z Scale.

With the N Scale RTR cars growing so quickly that the 80's it made sense that they would need add pace for their lines separate from the larger gauges. The separation allowed both companies to grow.

The whole Kadee N Scale line of couplers are still available from Microtrains.

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Vertical storage sounds good until you go to use it. Each tube must be removable to get the shorter pieces out. I use the Very very old, like 60 year old cardboard tubes with metal ends that Northeastern use to send their strip wood out in from the 1960's. I have tubes with the size on the end plus L H,Z, types of special shapes on the tube cap. It kind of helps but the tubes are still a pain when I put caps on the wrong ones. hahhaha I stored it vertically and horizontally and it was a pain either way.

Re: Remembering Frank Kappler

Climax@...
 

Bill:
I am still as strong contender that keeping the box square allowing the dividers to be either across or lenthwise is a great idea. It allows the owner to select his desired wood display by just shifting the dividers which could be locked together as a unit, 90 degrees. The option gives the buyers the option of either way. Strip wood in thicknesses of 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, and 12 scale inch thicknesses for each drawer would be great. even a drawer for sheet wood, clapboard, board & batton, scribed, could be a bottom drawer as well. I have mine if a long box on edge but flat would be just as good. The drawer if stored vertically would need to be 4 or 6 inches deep. I am not sure what the drawer handles should be, maybe something lazer cut and glued on.

scattered to the winds etc.


I had saved mailing tubes to store the lumber, and labeled the tubes
with the sizes. It was a mess and took up a lot of space. One day
Frank walked into my shop and presented me with 7x8x28 inch, 7 drawer
box. The drawers had dividers to hold HO scale 1x2's through 12x12's,
plus two bottom drawers to hold his siding material.

thanks.
Kevin.
