Spark Arrestor

Does anyone know of either a kit to build, or a ready made Spark Arrestor available that would fit an Allen Stack?

Re: Flashers R Us

I may be stuck for just trying to turn one out of a wood dowel. It’s that “Football” shape that I’m looking for.

Re: Flashers R Us

Actually, I am looking for a couple of Air Brake Reservoirs. He had one that was a nice epoxy casting.

Flashers R Us

I may have been out of touch for a while, but does anyone know what became of Flashers R Us after the owner passed away? Has the business been picked up by anyone?

Re: PMLW 3/4” Scale Trucks

Ah, I see! Very good! I guess the builder of these trucks may have had that prototype in mind.

Re: PMLW 3/4” Scale Trucks

I have been asked to post photos of these trucks, so here ya go. I can’t explain why the builder chose to use a single spring, or why he never installed journal box covers. But this is the condition they were in when I inherited them. 8F98A918-1D08-499B-8E86-73E30ABF8D37.jpeg v DBBE9D16-5B15-4D14-93...

PMLW 3/4” Scale Trucks

A question....I recently inherited several items from the estate of a long time Live Steam modeler. One of these was a set of Bettendorf trucks in 3/4” scale, with the letters PMLW formed into the side frame castings. Can anyone shed light on this maker? I really have no use for the trucks, and may ...

BRAND NEW Ohlenkamp 1 1/2” Scale Injector ****SOLD****

I’ve just come into possession of a few Brand New Ohlenkamp Injectors from the estate of a deceased Friend, who was a long time live steamer. He bought these years ago from Emery Ohlenkamp himself, and never got around to using them. I’ve decided to sell one, and am asking $350 for it, new in its pa...

Caboose Marker Lights source?

Bryte Rails seems to have closed up shop, and cannot seem to access Railroad Supply Corporation's website. Also Franklin Automatic's website is now inaccessible. Anyone have any other sources for Marker lights?

Re: Wanted 1/4" brass angle 36" length

Hi Guys! I am happy to report that K&S came thru! And the material they sent me appears to be extruded, or milled, and not bent with a Brake. There are a couple of points worthy of note, tho....they have a $100 minimum on special order materials, and plus, since it IS a special order, they have to h...

Re: Wanted 1/4" brass angle 36" length

Thanks Gents...I appreciate the the suggestions. But, in my haste, I failed to mention that I had need of it in 1/32" thickness. I KNOW about Online Metals, they are one of the first places I looked, and while they DO stock it in 1/16", that's a bit thicker than I need. But thanks Trainman, for the ...
