Re: SEC87K & FC87K for trade

Steve Wintner
 

Folks, I should have been more specific. I've had a few inquiries. 

I'm not selling. I'm offering to trade. I'd rather have some of the steam locos pockets, or extended shanks, etc. 

If no trade offers are forthcoming, I'll think about selling. 

Thanks

How much would you want for the FC87? And how many are there? I have been dying to get ahold of some for my coal train

Yes but the current problem is tha First Calls isn't currently available, only Priority for about US$80+ per package or Global Express for US$123.  And I was told at the Post Office that it's because of the restricted passenger flights.

Hoping these will be lifted in March as I have some stuff to ship to Brisbane area.

Hey mike, there has been a steady stream of flights from Australia and New Zealand.

Re: For Sale: Multiple coupler types, assembled and kits - Australia

Justin Walker
 

Hi all,

I have confirmed with our postal service that we are indeed ok to send to the USA currently but as noted the best, and only option I am offering, is Express International Parcel. This includes tracking but may be small delays over standard delivery time. Cost for this package of couplers is AUD$58 so around the USD$38 mark.

Hope this helps clear any confusion

Cheers
Justin


Re: For Sale: Multiple coupler types, assembled and kits - Australia

James Koretsky
 

Andy,

It's not just 1st Class Package International, it's Priority Mail International as well. The only option is Priority Mail Express International, which is 30% more than Priority Mail International.

And yes, it's also reciprocal, with the most expensive option only available from Australia, although a seamail is an option, although I did recently get offered International Standard, but without tracking, so I declined.

What's interesting is, that the routes haven't changed for the Highest Class of service from the US to Ausralia, and the time is still well above what they're stating the time frame should be.

Sorry to hear you will not be using Sergent couplers any longer.

You have an idea what the shipping cost to a 53150 zip code would be?

Thank you

Hi all,

Sadly as I leave HO scale I must part with my beloved Sergent Couplers. So far all the rolling stock I have sold has been dispersing Sergents to the country however I still have a large supply of them available.

The full details are in my ebay listing:  https://www.ebay.com/itm/275174210013?hash=item4011a939dd:g:F1wAAOSwtn9iEFnj#shpCntId

Note that the listing is open to many countries and I can quote postal rates before you bid for international if you hope to avoid sticker shock. Listing is AUD$200 (approx USD$145) so postage will still see this under USD$200 for approx USD$950 worth of product

Would make a good supply for someone looking to convert a fleet

Sergent coupler mounting, Branchlines' Pullman cars

Steve Wintner
 

Hello,

I don't recall seeing how anyone mounted Sergents on their Branchlines Pullman. Here's what I came up with so far. 

I flipped one of Smoky Mountain Model Works coupler boxes upside down. The solid post was drilled and tapped, one down and one up. The Branchlines coupler mount was cut back, the sides lopped off, and new holes drilled for the coupler box. The one screw was filed down to just fit. That gives a decent length of thread, and fits inside the Branchlines coupler carrier. 

I haven't decided what to do about sir and steam lines. (Clearly a brass fabrication would be stronger, and allow for soldering air and steam lines.) 

I made a styrene plate to cover the coupler pocket and fill the gap between bolster and end. The coupler knuckle just peeks out beyond the diaphragm. And the Branchlines truck clears it all neatly. 







Hopefully the pictures make up for my description. I'm not entirely satisfied, because the coupler hanger cannot be fixed in place. It press fits neatly, but I'm unsure that will survive actual use.

Subsequently I have found that a lateral bias equivalent to substituting .008 wire for .005 can be obtained by installing two .005 wires on one side. Turns out it is just as effective and results in the maximum amount of displacement obtainable using this method. It's probably the maximum amount of displacement that you should strive for as well.

I feel like the wires have to stick out of the box. I don't want them to scrape their ends on the plastic since these wires being incredibly small are sharp. I'm thinking they could dig in to the plastic. Since they stick out their length has no effect. Esthetically it doesn't matter that they stick out as they are nearly invisible.
