Re: Need help finding someone

Bill, here is the links to Carolwood Society (sp) webpage. The second link is for castings to build CP173. They are the same patterns (I believe) that Walt Disney used.

Re: Insulated Rail Joiners

Last I heard was that the arbitration was delayed for some reason. I know one of the owners and won't go into detail unless he gives the word. [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/mad.gif"%20alt="[/img]

Re: Painting

Well, that's not too far off. Here in the great state of Texas, Westinghouse built a manfacturing/research facility and did exactly that.
