What is this?

I thought either power reverse or brake cylinder. Anybody know?

It’s a solid casting.

For sale: $225 including Priority Mail shipping.

1” scale cast iron drivers. Got them but don’t need them, as I got another loco that already has them on it.

Re: linkage pin material

Same as Fred. Drill rod. I don’t harden them and the oil bronze bushings wear faster and I haven’t seen any pin wear on my loco.

10’. I was able to take the switch for the ballon loop at LALS with 1208. The center drivers are not blind.

Re: EE Product Updates - 5/3/19

The safeties look great, like the rest of Anthony's stuff. Can't wait.

Remember I need a safety for the 1208, so there are only 171 available for everyone else.

Re: 1" Scale Railroad Supplies

Lonnie is still there. He has a day job so that may have something to do with it.

Re: Question about a DLS ad

You would be fine as St Croix has both of those as well on the high line, in addition to 2.5”.

Re: Pipe thread sealant?

Blue threadlocker Loctitie or Permex. Easy to disassemble, easy to clean off during maintenance, always available on the road, won't break off like tape. Just one of the many methods you could use.

Re: Ox Yoke™ Safety Chains

I've done a version of this in 1" scale for as GGLS requires them and they worked great. I used cable and loops, but they worked great, including when it did derail the cars did not roll apart.

Re: Cabin Fever Expo

Anthony, might I suggest another airport. I think Philly might be a better place to fly in. It a long haul from O’Harre to downtown Harrisburg.
