1-1/2" 0-4-0 Reading Camelback Misc Castings

Post by Bill Shields » Wed Oct 17, 2018 2:42 pm

I have a set of CI main drivers, all bronze cylinders and a CI stack made by Tony Daddi a few decades ago.

These parts are a good start on kit bashing an A5.

Anyone interested? If so I can take / attach some pictures.

As much as I like this little engine, I doubt that I will live long enough to build one.

I will toss in a set of CAD drawings reworked from the Nusky originals

]I guess that there is more than a little interest, so I am going to post some pictures.

The cylinders, stack and driver are Daddi.

The remainder of the stuff is a mixture of Allen and Mercer (air tank brackets) circa middle 1980's

yes, there are only two eccentric castings but 6 bronze eccentric strap sets (go figure)…

I think I was going to use them to drive my dual axle pump and went a different direction and used bar stock instead.

The drivers are back turned and bored to 1.0" (done by Daddi)

3 of the tender wheels are rough worked, the remainder are raw castings.

I really want to sell the entire lot to one person if at all possible.
