Re: Info about PVLS boxcar decorated for Chinese restaurant?

I don't have an answer to the specific question, but it isn't unheard-of for businesses to sponsor a particular car. Actually, it's a great way for clubs to add rolling stock to the fleet. There's a beautiful steel gondola with Milwaukee Tools plastered on it up here in Vermont. I know of another i...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Hi All, I just saw the replies here, sorry for missing them. The next round of gauges is in the works but they will be ready when they are ready as they are getting made on a somewhat limited time permitting basis. I was starting to phase out the 300psig gauges but we could see what we can do about ...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

question regarding your pressure gauges. from a practical standpoint. are they the same size diameter as a loco parts pressure gauge? my father has a loco parts gauge on our Hudson. but it's not showing accurate on the needle. Gauge size is 1-1/2", case is 1-13/16" dia x 1-1/16 thick? I have to fin...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Finally got some photos of the new 200psig gauge, but even these don't do them justice;

Here's the 300psig versions,

For the larger scale locomotive these are really a beautiful must have complimenting piece of man jewelry.

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Hi All, I just updated the website today but I now have stock of 3" 200psig and 3" 300psig pressure gauges for sale for the larger scale engines. No photos yet of the 200psig versions (hope to have some tomorrow). They are more or less the same artwork from the smaller 200psig gauges on a 3" face. I...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Hi Harlock, The next round of the larger pressure gauges are now in the works both in 300psig and 200psig ranges. As this is a spare time venture not sure exactally when they will be done. Hopefully within a few weeks. We are looking at and giving more thought on the duplex gauge. Do you think 150ps...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

For all these air systems, Id love to see a miniature duplex gauge. But Im sure that would be quite the critter to squeeze together and get working. Yea even the full size Westinghouse test gauges are still a bit big for my 3" scale loco. There are some small duplex gauges made for automotive use b...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

Harlock can you make do with 160psig gauges? I still have a few of those without the word locomotive on them which I had always intended for use on air. What pressure are you running your air system on? I would have thought that 160 would be better for air pressure anyhow if you are running a 1:1 st...

Re: Model Steam Pressure Gauges

We just made up a few 3" diameter 300psig gauges. These would look perfect in the cab of a larger locomotive; Large Scale 300psig1.JPG I am not sure what the demand will be like for these or if we will be running any more after this so if you are interested best order them now as there is limited st...
