Re: WTB, Allen Models Aluminum Chloe dome castings

I currently show that we may have a sand dome base in aluminum in stock, call or email Steve Alley (jetalley@aol.com) to see if there might be a sand dome top in aluminum kicking around as well. We are selling off the existing inventory of aluminum stuff even as we offer the cast iron replacement. C...

Re: Liability insurance

I just purchased liability insurance from these guys for the estate railroads I build and equipment I sell. Was reasonable. They are a broker that sources insurance from many different places, but they specialize in railroading and scale railroading as a side item.

Photos part 2. It was nicely detailed. I remember it had some issues and did not run much that day.

Re: Has anyone built a "New" Shay in 7 1/2" ?

I believe this is a scaled up Kozo Shay, saw it at the LALS 50th anniversary meet now a long time ago (2007). Not sure if it is a new shay or an old shay in terms of plans.

Re: MEG steam Wendy Reconstuction

Hey I'm alive. You can use the Wendy pictures any way you like. I have Jim's burner shown in the photos, he went back to coal full time so he gave it to me. The burner is fine after you ditch the baffle plate below the burners. The air coming in from a gap underneath the fire door is perfect. I was ...

Used Moutain Car / titan roller bearing trucks for sale (SoCal) SOLD

I have four pairs of used 1.5" scale 7.5" gauge Mountain Car Co / Titan Trains trucks for sale. These were only used on aluminum track so the tread is still good. They need a fresh coat of paint and some of the faux roller bearing journal covers are missing. (you can order these on Titan's website) ...

Re: 2.5" scale "Fulton" 4-4-0 castings now available from Allen Models

This project has been on hold for quite some time due to other priorities, and the fact that the drawings need a lot more reworking than originally anticipated. So for now it will remain an offering of castings only.

Best,
