Altoona Works Photo Etched C&O Tender and Cab Kits

These were made by Larry Fuller (recently deceased) of The Altoona Works many years ago. He once had a line of cabs, tenders and some other parts, for C&O, PRR and other roads. The sheets are very good quality etchings, as good as imported brass, but there is 'some assembly required', of course !

Photo etched sheets to make:

C&O J-2 4-8-2 Cab
C&O G-7 2-8-0 Cab - (angled front, partially cut out)
C&O 9-RC Tender shells

Tender body is 42'-9" long by 10'-2" and 7' -9" high. It has stamped coal boards up front, but I can't identify it more precisely. No frame available, just the body, but it is complete and very well done, probably made by PFM.

HOn3, HOn2 Scale Brass Parts:


Misc. brass 'HOn3' drivers and wheelsets:

2 drivers, 6 wheelsets (all different), 2 leading truck frames

5 brass 'HOn3' (or thereabouts) Cylinder Blocks:

All are very good quality, cast and fabricated, slightly different, slide valve blocks, 1 with crosshead guides & yoke, 2 w/ guides, 2 w/o.

2 'HOn3' tender shells:

1 Kemtron wrapper, one brass (Ken Kidder ?) small tender shell with 3 tool boxes.

2 'HOn3' 4 wheel trucks:

2 slightly different 4 wheel truck assemblies. Very nice spoked wheelsets, elec. pickups for all wheels, brake shoe/lever details.

One truck has a worm shaft/idler/wheel gear arrangement for powering along with a bolster bar, and can take a 14x20 round can with some modification. The other truck had a spring band drive, and should probably be 'un-powered'.

They are very good looking narrow gauge trucks, with lots of potential for all sorts of 'critter' modeling !

'HOn2' outside frame castings and 2 drivers:

2 cast brass frame sides (w/ 1 crossbar), 2 inside spoked drivers. Nice begining for a 'two-foot' 0-4-0 or 2-4-0.
