Re: 12" working railroad

We used chevy high performance valve springs on our trucks.

I believe spring rate is how many pounds compress the spring one inch.

Re: Working Sanders?

We use plastic tubing from the dome down to the frame. I put a hole in the end of a 35mm film canisters and push it on the hose to help keep them dry as u can't hammer on plastic very well to vibrate the stuck sand out.
