Re: Fixing Shifted Loads

Model: Load Shifter

Courtesy of Paul Koehler, these are photos of a load shifter built by the late Bill Topham of Glendale, CA, for his HO scale Silver Palace Lines. Although it is not an exact replica, Bill scratch built this from studying the load shifter located in Southern Pacific's Taylor yard.

Bill's father was an SP engineer so I assume Bill had good access to the Taylor Yard facilities.

The Silver Palace Lines appeared in the March 1982 Railroad Model Craftsman, the June 1977 NMRA Bulletin and other publications.

This model will be installed on Paul's layout, also in Glendale.
