We are in need of a few 16" Wabco cylinder packing cups, part no 68582. They are no longer kept in stock, but are available by special order with a minimum order of 12 at a cost of $122.75 each. I can justify 5 for our current need and stock on the shelf, but 12 is a bit painful...

Does anyone else need some, or alternately does anyone have spares available?

Randy

RMNE (Railroad Museum of New England) will take two. So, now we just need five more and the minimum is reached!

Check with Pittsburgh Air Brake. They stock the most common railroad rubber and some that are not so common.

We have some new 16” brake cylinder packing cups in stock and available for $159.58 each, plus shipping. I will need to check on the quantity currently available.

EDIT: Disregard the above offer.

We only have three in stock, so we are interested in the remaining five cups, splitting the order as discussed above. Are we a go? Do you want us to deal with Wabco, or does someone else have their heart set on it? I assume that any extra UPS costs would be the only charge over and above Wabco's price.

For the moment we are getting one from Strasburg, then are still interested in a group buy.

Thanks all,

Randy

Five for you, five for us, and two for Howard is the group buy, unless someone else cares to join in and in that case, we will order more than 12. Speak now, or you know what.
