Re: 12VCompressor for a Brake Car

Our club uses the Tom Bee compressor unit on our club cars with great results. It powers breaks for four cars.

Re: Whistles

November/December 1992 of Live Steam has an article called Whistle Clinic. This has symptoms then tells why it happens. I have used this article to help improve the sound of a whistle.

Re: 3-1/2" OS Porter Live steam need help

Re: Push/pull control cables?

I used a choke cable from the local auto store on my cylinder cocks for my Mogul. This works great for me.

Re: Looking for small sqaure driver

The Winton Mogul has 7" drivers with a square conter weight. I don't have a picture on this computer to add. I don't know if they are available any more. The last Winton website is down.

Re: Brass or Bronze?

For something as important as a boiler I would order a piece to make sure you know what you have. Cheap insurance!

Re: WTB: 3/4" scale VanBrocklin single cylinder pump dwgs.

This is an old thread, but I have just started looking for these plans. Are there any available that I could get a copy of or a similar pump in 3/4?

Thanks for any help!
