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

    • 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.

    • I will forewarn you to paint your weights when you find them, I found that I was having trouble with mine and it was jerky and would stall at times, when I pulled the covers off the motor housing it was full of lead oxide and was getting in the gears, the engine is 1980s vintage, Just an FYIlead oxide

    • I'm installing a DCC sound decoder into a friend's LGB 2018D Mogul.  To my amazement, there are no weights in the front and rear of the gearbox like all the other Moguls I've worked on.  I found out from a former LGB technician that the first versions of this Mogul LGB does not have any weights in the gear box.  If anyone has either of these weights that they'd like to sell, I need them.

      Thanks

    • 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.

    • I'll trade you for that beautiful Mallett logging loco, lol

    • I assume you are talking the traditional bachmann archbar right. I have an entire draw jammed with trucks I am sure I have some and can spare them
