Locomotive Driver now available RTR!
Okay, so not everybody builds their own steam locomotives. But for those who do, here's a 10" driver, 1.125" thick and with a 3/4" axle bore. Tire machining is already completed with Tom's legendary profile. That's a big timesaver. Just $95 each, ready to roll.
If you need that crankpin hole drilled, it will be a little extra, but don't hesitate to ask. Tom has other driver sizes as well, so please see the price list.
$$$ Cash for Couplers $$$
"A while back I announced a "coupler upgrade" program. This is how it works. The customer will get to do something with his old, broken, worn out, or otherwise scrapped couplers."
"I will give a five dollar discount on one of my new cast steel couplers if he trades in any "two part" coupler (that is knuckle and base) in any condition, any material, any manufacturer (as long as it's 1.5" scale). This same offer applies to my old cast iron couplers. ($5.oo off)"
