Grand Scale catalogs

Post by Loco112 » Mon Jun 12, 2017 6:18 am

Has anyone got any catalogues from Grand Scale builders and suppliers? These often include old info which can be very useful to us modern Grand scalers.

The following are some of the companies that might have had a catalogue:

Winton Engineering.
Keystone light Equipment Co.
McDermott Locomotive Works.
Sandley, I have one from the mid 1980's.
Little Engines 1952 (Neiracker Hudson)
Mammoth Locomotive Works
Urich locomotive Works,, Strausberg, CO.
Crown
Loveland Steel, (steel rails, mining track supplies)
There must be more.

Are there any that I missed that could add something to the information collection ?

If a catalog has even one good page of grand scale in it, I'd like to scan it and have it included into this information compilation.
Narrow Gauge (Information) Exchange dot Org forum

I believe I have a couple of these in my files SOMEWHERE. One of my Crown catalogs is scanned here:

I haven't updated these pages in 12 years so none of the links work anymore...
