Talking

Since my last post the mailman has been, I now have my Climax (thanks Mike).





Wagon looks the part too.



This little effort took half an hour, I've gone to new PB and been figuring it out, trying to.

Early 1900 as far as I can make out, it was driven with a flat belt then, it does a top job, took 20 minutes to cut that piece of 3" round, but it's a good square cut and there's no clean up like a cutting wheel.

It sure does look heavy duty, I am surprised you can find blades for it.
There is no kind of a drip oilier attached to it?
Does it show a brand/manufacturer name on it?

Got enough bolsters cut for the 6 wagons.



And glued on, hopefully.




Both the Shay & Climax are looking for something to do.

Couplers fitted,



Just have to trim the screws to size now.



New trucks fitted, this is the steel wagon and the pole is adjustable.



5 finished, ran outa trucks.



I had to load it and try, , both engines pulled 5 loaded wagons easily.
