Bruce,


My guess would be large scale industrial plumbing, or possibly waste treatment, or a dam. The large crates probably contain parts needed to fit the conduits's into their final location. The conduit seems to be at least 6 feet in diameter.

Friends,

Attached is a photo of a freight car load on a B&O train I model. It is on a local between Baltimore and western Maryland around 1950. Anyone have an idea what this could be?  It for sure looks to be an interesting load for a pair of gons.  Any insights appreciated.  

i will try to post a higher resolution scan tomorrow. Thank you for your input.

Modeling a Lever Hand Brake

Gene…

 

I misidentified the lever action hand brakes in Bruce Griffin’s original inquiry posted 1/20/19.

 

On closer examination they are clearly not Universal Type 5790-A devices as I suggested. They share a stirrup handle but beyond that the action is entirely different.

 

Thanks for correcting me.

 

Bye the way, I posted my response on 1/21 and it did not show up until 1/29. Not very timely.

Doug,

 

No, just the rivet broke. The lip on the pop rivet wore out. It probably wasn't maintenance properly and wore down. The linkage is fine.

Re: Linkage repair on a brass locomotive

Bryian Sones
 

Thanks Bruce, I'm familiar with rivet tools. I've used them in other application in the automotive field. I used to build show cars for the CES and the SEMA show when I was younger. I wasn't sure if there was a hand tool available to replace rivets that small or if it was stamped during production and the end user was left with fabricating some sort of replacement if it wore out. I'll see if Bowser still sells the tool. Is there anyone else that might sell the rivet tool?

There are a number of suppliers of rivets of that size and having a rivet tool is very useful. Micro rivets are usually hollow tubular stock. The rivet will come with one side formed. I insert the rivet, put the formed side on a hard surface and then gently peen the unformed side. The tool I use is about 1/8 diameter stock with a concave end that helps in peening over the rivet end. Mine came from Bowser.

No, I have never had to replace a rivet linkage before. However I have Quartered Repaired and painted also added fixture details and sound decoders to many brass locomotives. I have even painted brass professionally so I'm not afraid to tackle the task. I'm just not aware of the process to produce a replacement rivet. I could easily fabricate a replacement from brass stock as a stand in but I'm not sure if that is how it is done or is there a rivet tool?
