    Live Diesel?

    Actually it's been done on 7 1/2 inch gauge tracks. I think that the scale was 1 5/8 per foot. A three cylinder diesel from Kubota or one of the other makers gives a real nice sound. the generator from a heavy duty truck and a smaller generator for the exciter would be the other consideration. I...

    Evening Guys: Thanks for the thoughts on Tony. He's been moved to the transitional care ward. The doctors say that he doesn't have much time left. Maybe 2 weeks at tops. I hope that he goes soon and stops suffering. One life ends and another begins. No MRRing today again. I did more of that...
