Correction.  That's 9 assorted pairs.  The full description follows:

       Carmer Cut Levers in HO scale, part #8053.  The levers are
made as a single piece, as requested by those who responded to my
request for preferences.  The design is created from PRR drawings
posted in the files section of the Steam Era Freight Cars mail list on
Yahoo Groups.  A bending guide is enclosed with each package.
Each package has nine sets of levers in the following quantities.
(Types are for reference only and not official designations)

1 ea Type A, 2 ea Type B, 2 ea Type C, 3 ea Type D, and 1 ea Type

        These are the descriptions for the types:

    A)      #1 Handle with #1 Operating Lever as
            used on
            GL, GLC, GS, GSA, (GSC and GSD prior
            to 1915), KF, KFA, XL, XLB, XLC, XLH

    B)      #1 Handle with #2 Operating Lever as
            used on:
            FM, F22, GLA, GP, GPA, GR, GRA, H21A,
            H22, XLA

    C)      #2 Handle with #3 Operating Lever as
            used on:
            G21, G23, H24, H25, H26, K7, X23, X25

    D)      #17 Handle with #16 Operating Lever as
            used on:
            X29, X28A

    E)      #14 Handle with #21 Operating lever as
            used on:
            G24, X26 (USRA boxcar)

        Other types of cars can use these with slight bending or
trimming.  Extra length is added to all operating levers to
accommodate model couplers, if needed.  The price is $20,
postpaid, for the nine pairs of levers.

    Let me know if you would like a full listing of my products.

The owner of Free State Systems is also a member of this chat list and I'm not sure if the price is still correct.

Subject: [STMFC] Carmen cut levers


The IC and several other RR's used Carmen cut levers on their freight cars. I have need of about 10 sets of these levers for the cars on my Sierra RR list. Does anyone know where I can find this product?
