Re: Pantograph

Look for Bob Hegge's article in the May 1974 issue of Model Railroader.

Spend a buck and get it here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Model-Railroad ... SwAl5eOzgW

Re: West Valley electric locomotive

Bringing this thread back to life again... There was a recent discussion on Facebook regarding these engines and a number of us would like to revive the project and build our own.

Re: Wood lathe

Hey hoppercar, 3D printing would also work. I'm doing the it for my 1 3/4" scale tank car on 3 1/2" gauge using an 8" PVC pipe. If you're interested, we could work something out.

Re: Any interest in me having these wheels cast?

Best, let us know. BTW: Question- can the spokes be tapered or rounded on the edges? I am interested in modeling some WW1, 1915 era British Trench Railway equipment- also a very similar design to English quarry RR cars same era.

Any interest in me having these wheels cast?

Hi folks. Would there be any interest from the group in having these wheels run in iron? I'm putting together a large foundry order and could easily include these. Blue wheel is approx. 7" across flange and 1 1/2" thick. Black wheel is approx. 9" across flange and 2" thick. I can easily scale up or ...
