Got an "old tyme" loco on 3 1/2" gauge? You need these!

Post by Adirondack » Fri Oct 12, 2018 10:50 am

Hi folks. After my Kozo D&RGW trucks are released, I will be offering USMRR/ACW railroad items, including these lovely wood framed trucks featuring full details: laser cut wood framing, CNC turned wheels and axles with hidden roller bearings, and SLA printed details. As always, no machining required. Not sure on pricing yet, but they will be in the +/- $300 per pair range.

I will also be offering period-correct detail parts, such as the ACW stake pocket shown.

Reservations being accepted shortly, I will post a link to my online store. My plan is to have these available before the end of this year.

A few more images to enjoy, including a full size test print of the stake pocket.

UPDATE: This project is moving to the forefront while parts for the Kozo trucks are printing.

Here is a quick snapshot of the revised leaf spring assembly. Even though it is mostly hidden, it still needs to be beautiful.

Some test prints from the new SLA machine. These are low-res proof of concept prints, the production run will look even better.

I'll fire up the laser in a day or two and run the wood parts.

more soon.
