      But Steve,

      If you find a left side floorboard (the one with a hole that the air pump sits on) I'd be happy to buy it form you, for a project that needs completing.

      Thanks.

      I guess the price was right . .   Steve, I'll find a box for it in the next few days and let you know. Tipping it all in to a Priority Mail box is possibly the easiest solution - in my experience first class parcels $ and priority mail $ are usually about the same.

      That would be fine.  Let me know how much and I will get the funds to you in whatever way works for you.

    • I guess I am too late to ask if I can have it.  It looks like a good bit of kitbash fodder

    • This box is about to go in the recycle, but I thought I'd offer it here - free, plus shipping.  I can probably find a much smaller box to cram it all in.

       

       

      It's mostly Bachmann ten-wheeler bits.  There's the remains of 2 locos from the xmas sales 20 years ago, and what looks like at least 1 original battery loco.  I saw a couple of frames - one is complete with motor and rear axle; I was going to make an inspection loco out of it.  The front axle should be there, but the blind center driver is in my 2-8-0.

       

      On the left is a large boiler made from parts of 2 other boilers - just the large rear sections with a new smokebox and brass wrapper.

       

       

      Underneath are some old Lionel bridge sections and other bits.

       

       

      It will have to go in a couple of weeks . . .

    • Which part or both?

       

      Axle unit or electronic sensor with wires.  Did you need the whole axle?

    • Hello All,

      I am in search of a chuff sensor for an older LGB mogul if anyone has one in their parts boxes or knows of one available for sale.

       

      Thank you in advance,

    • Next up on my list are nine wood scratch-built 1:20.3 flat cars.  Eight 30 foot and one 40 foot.  These are Operations Quality cars, with minimal under-body details.  Most of them have metal trucks/wheels.  Two have no trucks.  Some have AMS couplers.  I can take more pictures if desired.  $300 plus shipping, or consider trades for AMS or Bachmann 1:20 rolling stock.  I'd separate the trucks from the cars for shipping, and pack as well as I could.

    • Large collection of relays, IDC5 and ODC5 (input and output relays)   These are optically isolated relays for industrial use.  Experimented with these for using Arduino Logic to turn on and off various lights.   Figure I'd offer them here before they go off to eBay, since we have a bunch of electronic guys here.  $100 + shipping.

    • Ooh.  I like the idea of the cast resin tire and wheel!   I guess I need to get back into mold making...

    • Tires are a problem.. Here is what I have done.

      The white rubber tires can be replaced with tires from the Flick Trix toy bicycles as shown below. These fit the Hubley model T rim and pass very well for early black tires. Those listed as “Series 1” are the best fit and appearance there are other upgrade tires (sold as custom accessories) that work. Be careful of what you buy as some of the upgrades can be very knobby or gimmicky looking. I find these by the handful at garage sales and on E-bay.

       

      I have also cast wheel / tire sets in resin. This is the wheel and tire as a single piece. Clear cellophane tape was placed over the spokes to let the mold separate for removal. A little clean up is required. Paint to suit and you are in business. I found that during casting it was easy to fill the mold then pull it slightly open before squishing it back together. This forced the resin into all of the small details with out need for vacuuming the mold.

       

      Here are the masters with a vent and support to aid in filling the mold. They are painted with spray enamel to keep the RTV from sticking to them. They are a little beat up from having been molded. Usually have to do repairs before making a new mold.

       

      The tape is on the backside also a piece was placed over the center to keep the hub open.

       

       

      They are glued into the mold box upside down. You can see the tires in the top full row, third from the left.

       

       

      And here is how they are removed from the mold.

       

       

      This is basically a split mold. The tape is so thin that after casting I found that some of the area between the spokes had no resin layer at all. Those that did have resin flash was easily removed. I have a sack full of these somewhere but cannot find them right now. When I do I will post a pic of the castings.
