Building a LE Mogul. What are the rear boiler supports? I don’t see any in the plans. Thanks
I refer to your website re:timing stevenson valve gear.I have a problem in that
I cannot view your diagrams or jpgs of this article.I have built a 5″gauge live
steamer, an A10 loco.(Australian).I feel this article would be invaluable as I am
in the stages of completion.maybe a direct link to jpgs or emailed attachment.
Your response to this request would be most appreciated.
With Many Thanks
I would appreciate your listing our web site.
I think it was 10 or 12 years ago when we visited you in Providence, RI. I was working for Amtrak at the time and our son Joe was in College. I retired February 1, 2012 as an engineer working the California Zephyr between Oakland, CA and Reno, NV. I like the new look to the website and will try to visit it a little more often. Thanks and if you ever get to San Jose, CA I will give you a model railroad to live steam to prototype rail tour. I think I could set you up with a priests guest room at our parish rectory. Thanks and keep up the good work.
Thanks Bill! I do remember your visit. Hope all are well. Not sure if I’ll make it out there, but if I do, I will be sure to look you up.
Hi — I live in the UK, and was looking to buy a turbo generator as per the link above — for my 5″ gauge South African NG6 (Lawley) loco, but I can get no response from Midwest Engineering. I also understand NGT have closed.
Any ideas ?
Father Finelli, Good morning. I am an insurance agent in the Pittsburgh area and I am trying to locate insurance for a local club in our area (Mars, PA). The club wants to offer rides to the public on a train similar to the ones you operate. My interest is finding out the name of the company and/or agent who insures your train rides. Please contact me if you are able. David Matta, Matta, Rupp & Fiore Insurance.

Live Steam Supplies no longer operates from 26 Durham Rd Kilsyth. This is a private residential property from which the previous owner used to run this business. I would appreciate if you could remove this listing from your website. Thank you.

I just noticed that the supplier information you have for me is outdated. The correct web site UR L for Eaton Custom Engineering is:
Our correct phone number is (360) 355-2234
We offer locomotives, locomotive kits and track tools for the backyard railroad hobby. Thank you!
Thanks for the update!
I am looking for the email adress from David W. Moore. Can you helpe?

Everything is listed here: http://www.waushakumlivesteamers.org/events/
I would just like to say that the telephone number for Rob Preston Locomotives is wrong, it is 01639 899997 (UK) with an international dialling code. The e-mail address is now firstname.lastname@example.org.
My wife and I have visited many model live steam railways and would like to visit yours.
Is it possible to visit you folks when you have things steamed up?
This is our schedule: http://www.waushakumlivesteamers.org/events/
I live in southern RI and have a project, not railroad related, that requires some small scale machining of a prototype and was wondering if you or any of your members would be interested in taking a look at it.
Thank you for your consideration.
I barely have the time for my own projects. So, I would not be able to take on any other.
Dear Fr. Finnelli.. ….do you have a mailing address at your rectory where i could send you a good old fashioned letter.Thank you….Fr.John Michalczak/Archdiocese of NE A WARK. N.J..BISHOP JOHN MEYERS IS OUR CEO….AMEN!
Where may I find plans for locomotives?
Tom cook eastern Oklahoma
Hi Tom, You can look through the suppliers list under “Locomotives.” A number of them will have plans.
http://www.iowamodelsteamengineers.com/index.php/location Here is the correct location for the Iowa Model Steam Engineers. The club listing said you are waiting for a correct location
Thank you! updated
Alas, all but one of the suppliers listed on your Castings page have disappeared.
Father Jay: Enjoying your site, as always! A few comments for you.
New England Steam Corp. is holding an event called “Touch A Train 2017”, at Washington Jct. Yard, of the Downeast Scenic Railroad, in Ellsworth, Maine on June 10th. Information below. This is not 1/8th scale, but the real deal.
Free Admission! Sit in a Diesel locomotive cab! Ride the caboose “hop”! Explore railroad equipment and meet the steam locomotive 470 restoration crew. Blow the whistle and ring the bell! Hats and tee shirts available, H-O locomotives raffle, free Governor’s treats, and more. Meet the Downeast Scenic crews, with a special afternoon train at 1pm. A great time for families, children, and train lovers in general.
Come get in touch with your “inner train”!
Donations to restore Maine Central 470 gratefully accepted.
June 10, 2017 09:00AM to 1:00PM
Washington Junction Yard, Railroad Siding Road, Hancock, Maine

We have begun to bring together the 470 shop building, and expect to raise the building in mid-July.
Last, we have recently been told, the long sought after live steam model of Maine Central 470 is in storage, at Waushakum L.S. I would very much appreciate a series of clear images of the locomotive, if somebody can provide them. If the locomotive is NOT BEING FIRED OR USED, New England Steam Corporation would gratefully appreciate loan of the locomotive for display purposes. Perhaps the club board would consider that?
I hope the railroading season goes well for you and all our friends in the live steam hobby. My personal big adventure will be to visit the Mill Creek Central in August, to see the big PRR Q2 in service.
With my highest regards,
President, New England Steam Corp.
Owner, Reading 1179
hello there, I am on the board of directors for the VIME in Victoria BC Canada, please add us to your list.
I have not had my buisness in many years. I think my link should be removed?
Do you have a printed copy of your instructions for timing the Stephenson Valve Gear. I am rebuilding a Little Engines 4-4-0 American built back in the 60’s and need all the help I can get. Would appreciate a copy or a link to a good set of instructions. Thanking you in advance.
I don’t think they ever gave timing instructions. I do have something on timing Stevenson though. Have to look for it when I go home on my day off tomorrow. Send me an email tomorrow. webmaster (at) steamingpriest (dot) com
