Re: Woodinville Shops

Thanks for the nice comments. Yes, a great get together. We figured maybe over 100 folk showed up. Likely more, as people were coming and going throughout the afternoon. So nice turn out. Here’s our last shot. 93D93015-07A9-45FD-93E3-2DD45E5BE7E5.jpeg Cinder - Ella, parked for the night at Burma Sta...

Re: Penberthy injector

Here is the answer I got back from Beckham’s re: new purchase price. Slightly cheaper than the local steam supplier quote of $1345. Iam going to try the rebuild route first. Hello Glenn, 3/8” Penberthy injectors offered high pressure 50-200psi or low pressure 25-140 psi. Two styles; suction left del...

Re: 12" Guage Wheel Standard

Following up on flange radius and rail dimensions. Here is the ASME 12# rail standard for new rail. Shows 5/32” top rail head radius.

Re: Penberthy injector

Hi Vic, thanks. I sent them an email. Also heard about Edward and a Harold Stark, in Indiana whom they call the “injector Whisperer”. So a couple of good leads!

Re: 12" Guage Wheel Standard
