For the past
several years, I spent the weekends in my garage building a replica of
the Southern Pacific GS-4 Daylight in 1-1/2" scale. During this time I
have learned a lot about machining, locomotives and all the sub-systems
required to have a properly running engine. I have been taking pictures
during construction and thought that I would share them with those
interested. I'm not going to go into detail about how I machined things
or how I did this or that. Instead, I thought that I would show some
pictures and give a brief explanation of what was done.
My blogs are
organized in chronological order and not by subject matter. I may have
a couple sections on the same thing due to modifications or something.
