Web Site Only Specials

Products listed on this page are only available through this web page. These products are either "oops" parts or very specialized products that have very limited appeal. Some of these products are actual products found elsewhere on this site or in your local Hobby shop. But unfortunately, there was an error in the order. Rather than trash them, I will post them here with the hope that someone might have a use for them for other projects at a reduced price.



This batch of oops parts are the walkway platforms for the Red Caboose 10K gal tank car. But rather than stainless steel, these are brass. I feel brass is too soft for those running boards. But if you are comfortable with it, you have a deal. Brass is very easy to cut and modify, so if the parts fit another project you have in mind, you win again.

Here is a batch of parts that have a very limit use as they are. These are walkway platforms for the former RailPower, now Athearn Gunderson 2+2 well car. In our regular #173 kit, these are stainless steel and there are some other brass details and supports. These brass platforms just don't fit our requirements. So if you feel adventurous, have at it.

Confession. Many years ago, I started developing a walkway and handrail kit for the MDC TankTrain tank car. All the walkways, handrails and ladders were finished and ordered. Was working on the supports but knowing the car was not prototypically correct, gut told me not to spend the time finishing the project. Tired of moving the parts around the office, time to make them available for your other projects. All parts are stainless steel.

Copper Anode plates are a specialized product that very few roads carry and they are not seen many regions of the US. I don't know allot about these but since I was supplied with dimensions on three variations of them, I had them produces. They are made out of copper. Due to the number needed represent an actual load (200-300) and the price, I make them available direct only to hold down the price. Information on each style is listed below.

Here are a couple photos [1] [2]of a flat car with the anode in place. Model and Photos by David Doiron.



1) The first style is used by Freeport-McMoRan (formally Phelps-Dodge) at their Miami, AZ smelter. These anodes are typically shipped to the Freeport-McMoRan (formally Phelps-Dodge) El Paso, TX refinery. These same anodes have also been seen in Houston, TX probably being exported overseas. There could also be past Phelps-Dodge smelters that also used this anode style, back when they had other smelters operating.

2) The second style is used by ASARCO at their Hayden, AZ smelter. These anodes are typically shipped to the ASARCO Amarillo, TX refinery. I have also seen these anodes on highway flatbed trailers heading between the ASARCO smelter and refinery. There could also be past ASARCO smelters that also used this style, back when they had other smelters operating.
