Re: HO Scale Grab Irons


BLMA had both drop and straight grab irons made with. 008 wire.  Atlas has taken over from BLMA and the grab irons have recently become part of their line.  I now use them exclusively and they make a difference.

Bob, it sounds like you want Kadee bracket grabirons.

HO Scale Grab Irons

I want to upgrade a couple of HO scale freight cars I acquired at a swap meet. The cars have holes for simple wire grab irons but I'd like to add commercial grab irons with more detail.

Any suggestions for what I might use?
