Needed for C&S caboose restoration a 3/4" Westinghouse shut-off cock for conductors air dump valve. This valve was found in the cupola next to the train line pressure gauge, the Westinghouse logo was cast on the side of the valve body.

The 3D CAD exists, ready to be cast.

Let me know your thoughts.

Rotary type caboose valve. Don't know if this is the type needed or not.

FLO - Thanks for the great photo. What I have found in my research is the valve in the cupola of our car was a simple straight 3/4" Westinghouse shut-off cock. So I assume the conductor had to be careful and keep an eye on the pressure gauge when operating the valve.

FLO,

What equipment (RR, etc..) was the multi-position vavle in your attached photo used on?
