    I found this video on the net. It is a 10 min long silent movie. They build an old steam loco from pattern shop to roller. I thought some here might be interested:eek:) There are some big machines being used here!!! Enjoy.

    Kind of makes you want to build a 1:1 model engine. Now if I can just build a bigger shop.... ;D

    Thanks, cool video.

    Thanks for posting that. Really interesting. I like how they used the roller chain to get the right contour on the springs.

    That's a really interesting video. The loco shop still stands, however it now houses a grocery store. Most of the rest of the site has apartments and condos on it.
