A little locomotive with 4 wheels on the track is a lot more fun
than a 1/4 finished one with 16 wheels on the bench!

Those prototypes look to be plastic printed. Nicely.
Will the trucks for sale be the same?

Hi Russ. This is just the pre-production sample I printed on my machines to test the fit and finish of the various components. After one or two minor adjustments, the final product will be investment cast in bronze, with CNC turned steel wheels and axles. Hope this helps.

Thanks for asking.

Just to let everyone know, due to the Corona Virus outbreak overseas, our Kozo D&RGW trucks will be delayed. Apparently, this virus is actually a big deal...

Sorry for the inconvenience. More news soon.

UPDATE: I just wanted to let you all know that the master patterns for my D&RGW narrow gauge trucks to match the Kozo K-27 have been sent out to a US-based investment foundry for review. These never-before-offered on 3 1/2" gauge trucks should be ready to ship very soon.

Please visit my online store to reserve yours now. Thanks for looking!

Finally.

After several design iterations to aid in the production process, we’re ready to start making castings!
D&RGW trucks to match the Kozo K-27 on 3 1/2” gauge.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support and patience.

Yes, those are bolt threads you see just above my pinky. The detail on these prints is incredible.
