  • I found the Ghallenger locomotive plans - Thanks to you

    Hi all,

    Just wanted to let you know that thanks to you, I found the UP Challenger plans I was looking for. SGW put me on the right trail with his suggestion of Modeltec magazine. I called them and they had (2) sets of back issues left. I've already ordered them and will have them this weekend.

    Thank you all very much for your kind help and responses.

    PS. You're right about the engine in the Henry Ford Museum being an Allegeny. Can't believe I made that mistake - a guy from Michigan, too, no less!! Duh!!

        Walt,

        They're in Avon, Minnesota.
        MODELTEC
        P.O. Box 9
        Avon, MN 56310

        Website is www.modeltecmag.com, but the link to download their back issues list doesn't work. I had to call them (320-356-7255. It was a series of articles that ran for several months in the magazine on how to build this engine.

        These plans are not live steam, it's just a scale model, I think it's maybe O scale, and it doesn't include the tender. He was going to send me some information on where I might find plans for a tender for the engine.

        Cost is $63 plus shipping - and now there's only (1) left!

        Take care,

        Larry

            I just picked up the book on building the 1-1/2" Shay. Going to first try to build an N scale version for my layout. I've only ever seen one in N-scale and it didn't look great. I'm sure I'll be etching brass and my plastic injection molder will probably come in handy.
