Cylinder Saddle M172-1 Casting

I went to the foundry today and pick up two cylinder saddles. One is sold and the other is for a person that is waiting for his. But I forgot who this is. Shoot out to the one that needs to contact me ASAP. Next ones in two to three weeks out to get them from the foundry.

Two get this done before Back operation on Dec 11. L5 is push out and needs trimming. Hair cut for the back. One more trip for drivers to st...

Re: New Tender Tank Kits

I am only making Tender Kits for our engines. It would be crossing lines to do other Manf. tenders. I don't do that. If they contact me for this I can do so. But at a cost naturally. I have more than enough on my plate for Allen Models than to do others. We all are stand alone company's. I respect R...
