1.6” Scale “LEACH” Sander Fittings

I am making a very limited run of early style “Leach” sander fittings in 1.6” scale (1:7.5). These were found on some locomotives built in the late 1800’s. They will be $40 for a pair, machined with 7/32”-40 internal threads. A bit of an odd size, but this represents 1.25” pipe in 1.6” scale. I will...

Re: 3/4" Scale J1e

Jack, I can hardly wait to see what you do with this engine! Memories of finding that chassis came to me every time I walked through the consignment tables at Cabin Fever last weekend. Looking forward to posing #5544 next to #4683, and I'm glad to see your personal projects getting some TLC. Anthony

Re: Intermediate Injectors in stock

Also, I get a lot of compliments on the quality of these castings. Part of the reason they are so nice is that they’re not castings! All of the EE line injectors are machined from solid aluminum bronze. This gives me full control over quality and supply. I have TWO injectors that showcase the “raw” ...

Re: New Injector Nozzles for SP #18

Thank you all for the kind words. Robert, I also was surprised to learn that 18 had #9’s. To properly fire the engine depends on the injector being able to trim back. Thinking out loud here... I imagine they wouldn’t be as oversized for the larger 4-6-0’s that ran the route. Perhaps it had 9’s just ...

Re: New Injector Nozzles for SP #18

I proudly use and endorse both. I made these on the manual because the CNC was busy making intermediate injectors for Cabin Fever.

Machining is machining. It’s all fun.
I would sincerely appreciate it if we could avoid turning this thread into another manual vs CNC discussion.

Re: Rebuilding the Birch 3/4" NYC Pacific

I completely understand the sentiment about keeping everything as it was by the original builder. It's a question I've wrestled with myself with respect to this engine, however, the crosshead and side rods at the very least need to be replaced. I'm a huge sucker for prototypical rods and valve gear,...

Gorgeous work! Is the #18 the last locomotive that ran on the Kahalui Railway on Maui? Formerly from the Carson and Colorado Rwy Owens Valley operation? Thanks for posting those photos. ~RN NP317, The #18 is the former NCO #12, which was formally retired on the SP Narrow Gauge route in the 50's and...
