LEW, please check your conversations box. (I posted on NYC forum because I know you check it)
Did you get a hold of LEW?
Roger, yes, and thank you. I wanted to bring up photos he sent me years ago depicting his mockup of a steam locomotive and a terrific reproduction of Baker valve gear that he made. When we contacted each other recently he said you now watch over that mockup in its current location.
That's correct. I've had to tell folks 'Hands Off' to keep it from harm.
WOW!!!! What an artifact!
You should see the Baker Valve Gear mockup. If I can find the photos I will post one here. Do you have that, Roger?
I found them. LEW made each piece of the Pilliiod company Baker Valve gear, of wood. This man is a master machinist.
I'll look over the photos that I have today and get back to you on that.
Yes, I do have several photos of the construction posted by the model. Good shots!
