The Alexander Chapter-NRHS is seeking any quantity of old style (approx 16") brake wheels to use in our ongoing restoration projects involving SE narrow gauge equipment. We need up to ten pieces but will purchase any qty between 1-10.

Wouldn't it be easier to just make up new ones?

I've got the CAD already completed. I could easily send off the pattern to my local Amish foundry to be cast in gray iron.

Email me if interested.
