Re: Klasing brake wheel



Do you have info (especially diagrams or advertisements) on the Klasing lever hand brakes.  They show up on Pere Marquette cars with vertical shafts from the 1920s.

Klasing was sold to New York Air Brake.  All production facilities and recent records have been removed from Joliet.  

Older records went to the dump.  I would have given my left nut for a chance to haul them away or at least have a look.  This is the second time Klasing has disposed of records in such a manner but Wayne Klasing was kind enough to notify me after the fact both times.  And he knew of my interest in hand brakes.

Klasing is still around,  believe someone bought them out recently. Nick Molo has modern Klasing brake sets.

Unusual to see this on a new freight car in 1959
