Re: Wabash hand brake

I have a few photos of the cars in question showing later
Miner hand wheels (D-3279 or D-3384) which had replaced the
early wheel. So you can use the Miner hand brake with the
later wheel.

It is a very early Miner wheel that the Wabash seemed to like, as I have seen it on other cars besides this one. There is no HO detail part for it. I have spoken to Ted Culotta about it, but it is way down his "to do" list.

Subject: [STMFC] Wabash hand brake

I'm assembling the Wabash steel rebuild mini-kit Sunshine put out a few years ago using the Tichy steel rebuilt car.

The only photos of the B end I have are the one in the instructions and a very poor Sidney Wheeler snap shot. Both have some unusual hand brake. The hand wheel appears to be about 3' in diameter! Did they put any hand brakes on these cars at are available in HO scale?

Thanks for any help with this,
