Re: PMLW 3/4” Scale Trucks

Ah, I see! Very good! I guess the builder of these trucks may have had that prototype in mind.

Re: PMLW 3/4” Scale Trucks

I have been asked to post photos of these trucks, so here ya go. I can’t explain why the builder chose to use a single spring, or why he never installed journal box covers. But this is the condition they were in when I inherited them. 8F98A918-1D08-499B-8E86-73E30ABF8D37.jpeg v DBBE9D16-5B15-4D14-93...

PMLW 3/4” Scale Trucks

A question....I recently inherited several items from the estate of a long time Live Steam modeler. One of these was a set of Bettendorf trucks in 3/4” scale, with the letters PMLW formed into the side frame castings. Can anyone shed light on this maker? I really have no use for the trucks, and may ...

BRAND NEW Ohlenkamp 1 1/2” Scale Injector ****SOLD****

I’ve just come into possession of a few Brand New Ohlenkamp Injectors from the estate of a deceased Friend, who was a long time live steamer. He bought these years ago from Emery Ohlenkamp himself, and never got around to using them. I’ve decided to sell one, and am asking $350 for it, new in its pa...

Caboose Marker Lights source?

Bryte Rails seems to have closed up shop, and cannot seem to access Railroad Supply Corporation's website. Also Franklin Automatic's website is now inaccessible. Anyone have any other sources for Marker lights?

Re: Wanted 1/4" brass angle 36" length

Hi Guys! I am happy to report that K&S came thru! And the material they sent me appears to be extruded, or milled, and not bent with a Brake. There are a couple of points worthy of note, tho....they have a $100 minimum on special order materials, and plus, since it IS a special order, they have to h...

Re: Wanted 1/4" brass angle 36" length

Thanks Gents...I appreciate the the suggestions. But, in my haste, I failed to mention that I had need of it in 1/32" thickness. I KNOW about Online Metals, they are one of the first places I looked, and while they DO stock it in 1/16", that's a bit thicker than I need. But thanks Trainman, for the ...

Wanted 1/4" brass angle 36" length

This might not be the right place to ask this, but does anyone know of a source for brass angle 1/4" x 1/4" x 36"L? I used to get it from Special Shapes but their website has closed down, and I assume they have, too.

Re: Future of Superscale Locomotive

This is very re-assuring news! I just got into Live Steam last year with the purchase of a newly overhauled Allen Mogul, although I have been active in the hobby for several years. I was about to make a few parts purchases when Barry passed away. Now am looking forward to seeing the line re-activate...

Air Reservoir

Anyone know where I can locate an air reservoir (non-functional)? Precision Steel Car had one, but they have discontinued it.

Re: Allen mogul equalized pilot truck

Bill Shields, I'd like to take a look at the underside of your lead truck to see how you attached your equalizing bar, if you don't mind. Thanks
