Re: ISO L.E 4-6-2 trailing truck

The trailing truck pattern has been at the foundry for a few months now. The bronze foundry is a small operation and COVID hit it pretty hard. They had a shut down and are finally up again. I called last week ( I call weekly) and was told next week.

Re: 1/2'' scale drawings

We are bringing back all the small scale line. I actually started with the 2.5" gauge locomotives. They are actually scaled to .53125" to the foot. We have the cylinders and drivers being cast as we speak. They are true piston valve 1 piece block.

Re: Little Engines 0-4-0 Machined Kit

Having known a fair amount of people that retired, and then went to pursue their lifelong hobby dreams only to pass away before they ever got anything finished, I think it's money well spent.
