Re: Simple, good looking upgrade for your CliShay

Hello, I was curious if you had the castings made? I was thinking about the same idea but was going to use aluminum with a steel tire.

Hello, I was looking back through the threads for pump info but didn't really get answer. I am looking for a double action hand pump for my Wendy project. I would like to mount it in the cab on the left side looking at the boiler backhead. I also plan on an axle pump (or crosshead pump) and an injec...

Re: Restoring a MEG steam 'Wendy'

Mike,
Do you have a picture of the gondola? I was curious as to how one would sit on the gondola and still reach the controls.

I am still working on my Wendy but looking ahead to the tender or another solution.

Thanks for your feedback and jumping back on an old post!

Smokebox front - Looking for a casting

Hello,
I am looking for a smokebox casting that will work on a 10" sched 40 pipe smokebox. The loco is a freelance in 2-1/2" - 3" scale running on 7-1/2" track. The less detail the better because is cast-in bolt size, etc. Any ideas?

Thanks!

cast wheels on ebay

Did anyone see the 1.5" scale 33" wheel castings on ebay? search for cast iron train wheels. I am not affiliated with the seller in any way. Just wondering if this is a good deal and if anyone bought some.

Re: live steam firebox door

From what I see in the picture provided by RichD the firebox door set is a MERCER product. Does anyone have the original instructions?

live steam firebox door

Hello,
I received this casting set in a box of goodies. Does anyone know who made it? It didn't come with any documentation. I am not even sure if it is complete.

Anyone out there have prints for this firebox door?

I attached some pictures.
