Narrow Gauge Creations 20" Porter

Does anyone have first hand experience with this Shapeways item. I'm looking for a tramway set (static) up to haul rock from a couple of mines to a mill or two. I'm thinking this engine could be located 36" back from the facia to serve as 'texture' rather than as a component of a 'diorama'. More obscure in the background. I'm thinking Nn3 tippers for haulers. A couple behind the engine 'out on the line', a couple spotted at small mine tipples and a couple at the mills.

Any info will be appreciated!

I’m not a diesel fan either, but if they keep the NG trains running, then I’m not complaining.

Think I much prefer the Alco DL535's - they had a bit more character, these are too much like spam cans!

Re: PSC K-37 versus Division Point K-37

Mick Moignard
 

I have both PSC (2002 run) and DP K-36 models.  There are good and bad points in both.  Both run well, the DP is noisier out of the box than the PSC but PSC ones usually take some tinkering to deal with shorts. The PSC is I think more accurate in detail.  It’s also much cheaper, if you can find one.

I also have PSC K37s, and they’re also fine models. I have seen photos of the DP 37s, and notice that the DP model of 492 has entirely the wrong tender (PSC got the 492 tender right).  DP also missed the weld marks on the K36 tender where the side raves were extended.  These issues lead me to wonder what else is not quite right. 

One issue with the PSC 37 is that it has plated brass wheel tyres which will wear. The PSC 36 has stainless steel.  My DP locos have some sort of steel tyre, but one that doesn’t stay as clean as the PSC ones.

So, my recommendation is the PSC model, if you can find one.  As Mark says, you used to be able to buy nearly 3 PSCs for the cost of one DP.  Note too that the Overland K36 of around 1990 is essentially the same model as the PSC 2002 K36.

Re: PSC K-37 versus Division Point K-37

Well Bob, the main difference was that I was able to buy three of the last run of PSC 37's for the same price as my friend paid for his one DP. They're great lookers. I hadn't noticed the tender wheels!

No lottery but I sold ALL my other RR stuff apart from the HOn3 stuff ( as well as my Fender Precision Bass)

Bob, I do like the model, but (here it comes) my biggest complaint is the undersized wheels in the tender.  The wheels should be 26”, but the model came with 24” wheels.  I changed them on a buddies model and the changed was Significant.

Re: Stoner Creek Issue

Dale Buxton
 

Mark, 
From what I can tell from my work at UPS and from items I've ordered from China and and the EU and items I've sent to the EU. San Francisco and Chicago are the main arrival and departure US Customs centers for international air-post parcels. Sometimes my air packages from China go through  San Fran and sometimes they go through Chicago. If they do go through Chicago they more often than not stay there for a week or more. I ordered an IR thermometer from China on March 4th this year. Weeks went by and it never showed up! I cancelled the order. Then, in last week of May it showed up! It had been lost most of that time in Chicago! When a package comes to me via surface from China. It almost always goes through Long Beach or the Port of Los Angeles and it has been taking less time to get to me for some reason.
Why the airports at Los Angeles and New York and Miami are not part of the larger US Customs footprint is hard for me to understand other than it is a government bureaucracy. Denver is supposed to be an International Customs hub. But, from what I've seen, the stuff they handle was forwarded out of Chicago and San Fran. Here's the funny thing. British Air and Lufthansa are still doing international flights to Denver. B.A. from London and Luft. from Frankfurt. But there are no passengers on those planes at present. It's all Air Cargo! We are living in strange times!

Parcel receievd by USPS in NY on 6th April. Destination England.
Tracking showed it ready for international departure 8th April then......
Arrives in Chicago on 11th May.... Progress made is about 40 miles per day ------in the wrong direction!
Tracking shows it ready for international departure 13th May then......
Letter received from Royal Mail on 19th June to say that the parcel had arrived but they wanted approx $35.00 for duty and handling. (I suppose if they'd held onto it longer they could have handled it more and hiked the charge.) The Bastards.
Was tempted to tell them to stick their charges where the sun doesn't shine but to my eternal shame I capitulated and coughed up.
But I did learn that certain classes of mail are loaded into containers bound overseas but the container only gets loaded onto the plane when it's full!
