Don sold the patterns to Jim Abrams. Jim has castings available ,to my knowledge. They were originally developed by Bull Van Brocklin. Jim is on Facebook and here as well.

Yes! this is correct. Jim has them in Iron. They are a very sturdy 3/4" truck, easy to build and assemble.

It looks like I will be there on Friday and Saturday.
I'm trying to get my 3/4" Atlantic running to bring with me.

One of the two Atlantics built by Ralph Francis? Both were called "The Canuk".

That would be great to see back on the MLS rails.
