Trainman might still have some. He used to sell the castings for it.

I have some castings for that loco: cylinders, stack, wheels, air tank brackets, eccentrics, plus other items.

You would need to bash the remaining items.

Dave S is getting back in that business...which is a good thing.
Too many things going on to bother listing them.

Hi All,
My name is Ed Archer and I have purchased from Mercer the patterns, rights and such for this nice 1.5 scale 7-1/4 or 7-1/2 gauge 'old' 0-4-0 Camelback. There are castings on hand so if anyone has a need, please email me at the following email,

Contact information is:
Iron Horse Supply
email: IHSC775@gmail.com

Also - Am reintroducing the World Famous Manganese Bronze Couplers! The patterns were purchased from Mercer along with the rights and such.
They will be offered in both in the loop shank and solid shank flavors. If you have any coupler needs, email me at the above address and I will add you to the list. As I know your curious for a price, once the final costs come in from the foundry, a price can be established.

Also might add that if someone needs boiler work or a new boiler, I recommend David who has build a lot of these 0-4-0 steel boilers: Contact Trainman4602 on this board.

Thank you for your interest and look forward to serving your needs and in helping to keep these gals polishing the rails.
Best Steaming,
Ed Archer
