Elden, What you get for your $5 is three sprues as shown on the CNWHS Company
Store website, each with one Superior brakewheel and one handbrake mechanism
consisting of the HB gear housing, chain and connecting rod with bottom
clevis to connect with the bell crank at the bottom of the car end. Thus, you
get a total of three complete HB sets to equip three tall cars.

Dave; Does "3 parts per package" mean 3 sprues containing a total of 3
wheels, all for $5, or one sprue for $5 that has 3 parts on it, one of which
is a brake wheel? Thanks for this heads-up, also! Elden Gatwood

Gentlemen,
The Superior handbrake wheel and mechanism detail set is available
from the Chicago & North Western Historical Society, which first had
Red Caboose do them for a special run of M&StL box cars (sold out).
The Society still orders special runs of the Superior HB sprue for
their Company Store, three sets for $5, shipping included. I ordered
some a couple of months ago, and they are just beautiful. The CNWHS
Company Store website is http://www.cnwhs.org/shopping/index.php
<http://www.cnwhs.org/shopping/index.php>

Appears to be a Superior brake wheel. Red Caboose produced a separate
detail parts package 8000-13 with this brake wheel and housing but I
don't know if it's still available. Tim O'Connor
