    • Thanks Pete, in the mean time I found one off a Lionel Atlantic which is probably the right vintage but for a shop built engine will do and for $3.00 couldn't pass it up, Bill

      Not sure what you mean by water column do you mean tank spout?

      Columns allowed engines to refill away from the tank or source. Sometimes multiple columns were available.

    • Tim Muluna's photo of a Water Column at EBT. This is (was) fed by a pressurized underground water line.

    • Could get an MTH O scale one and stretch it out. Fits pretty good.

    • Thanks Bill. I didn't see what I need on TrainLi... I guess I should provide a better description.

      I need a roof for a shorty LGB two-axle passenger car, without the clerestory windows. The kind of cars that come in the starter sets.

    • I need a 3000 series roof. I bought a car for a project (that I'm just getting around to now) that didn't come with one.  I hate to buy a whole car just for the roof, so if there's somebody out there who has one in their parts bin, let me know.

    • I coat my lead weights with lanocoat, a lanoline based protectant used in the marine industry. My USA Trains weights need this treatment when I first open them up. It sprays on, keeps a nice coating and I don't have to spray paint, and try to get all 4 sides of a weight.

    • If it is $75 for the melted body, parts and power truck: mine, mine, mine!

    • Another box that has to go - no more room for trains that don't get used.  I picked up this set of 4 coaches which are in excellent original condition, and I bought steel Gary Raymond wheels to go with them, plus I have 4 pairs of Accucraft 1/29th couplers. I was going to put them all together and make a really useful train, but I changed my mind.



      I paid $75 for this set, which I thought was a good deal, so the price is $75 plus shipping for the coaches.  I paid $65 for the 16 axles of semi-scale wheels, so I will sell them for $65 + shipping. And the 4 pairs of couplers cost me $5 each, so $20 for the lot.  Here's some more photos and info.

      The 2 coaches:



      Combine and Observation.



      Nice brass end rails and a neat drumhead on the Observation. Some of the decor is a bit faded, especially the combine.






      As you can see, the combine and one of the coaches already have a Bachmann coupler. It mates with the Accucraft ones I have for sale.



      The second photo below shows the 1/29th coupler on the right with a standard Accucraft 1:20 coupler on the left.



      And finally the wheels, which may not be available - one of my friends has expressed interest and I may decide to keep them for future projects.
