Nice pictures, indeed! https://cdn2.vox-cdn.com/thumb...MG_5801-marked.0.jpg Question for any K-28 experts out there - the following image (9th down, showing a side view of the front truck) shows some sort of cylinder connected to what appears to be a rotating arm assembly, and I'm guessing it's used to raise or lower something up front, possibly the small plow or flanger shown?
I saw that too. I thought it was for raising the flanger. The D&RG had trackside post with a triangle with white stripes before grade crossings to warn the engineer or fireman to raise the flangers. ( Page 12 the guide book "Cinders & Smoke" )
I know where I can get the full set of the original ALCO builders blueprints to the K-28. The drawings were delivered with the OR&L #60,70,80, 90 which were rivet to rivet duplicates of the K-28's, except for the tender. I can also get you the K-18 tender drawing. Wouldn't that set be worth a donation of $50-$100 to a great nonprofit? I think its a bargain at $200. If you want those, just reply here and I'll get back to you.
I’m not sure if your still on here Loco112 but I am looking for the blueprints to start scratch building a D&RGW K-28. If your still on here can you message me and help me track these down? I have been on a hunt across the country for about a year now. Any kind of help would be wonderful. If there any others that can help me out with this mission that would be awesome as well. Thank you!
