Brass 1/8" Scale Retainer Valve

Post by FLtenwheeler » Mon Oct 01, 2018 11:45 am

The Brass 1/8" scale model of the Westinghouse 10-20 retainer valve are now available. These were located close to the brake wheel on freight cars. Inlet sized for 3/32" tube or wire. Nonfunctional. The picture is on a 1" square.

Very well done with the brass version of the retainer valve.

This may encourage me to develop the wasp exclusion device which was very popular out west where any small diameter hole was a prime residence for certain varieties of wasps.
