Re: Bunting P43-4

I wouldn't use it on a locomotive, use a good grade bronze with a oil hole.
I do use "oil-lite" bushings on my non riding cars and they work fine.

Re: Kozo"s k 27

The K-27 is 1.5" scale running on 4-3/4" track. There have been numerous narrow gauge locomotives built in this scale, to many to count.

Here is a K-27 in 1.5" scale built by Jim Schmidt. You can get an idea of the size.

Re: Who Sell Economy Butterfly Fire Box Door

The Mercer Butterfly doors are air or manually operated. They are big enough to remove grates if they are in sections. 3" opening.

Re: Who Sell Economy Butterfly Fire Box Door

I have built a C-25 in 1.5" scale and in 2.5" scale. I used Mercers Butterfly doors on the 1.5" loco and I think Ridgeway Roundhouse clamshell on the 2.5" loco. I would like to see the clamshell fire box doors offered in 1.5" scale as I am building a K-36 in 1.5" right now. I have a Mercer butterfly...
