While shopping Tichy Train Group, I just figured out that NBW's come in many sizes. My question would be what size would be on an end sill for truss rods? There are some pre-heavy weights on my list of projects. What would be appropriate for these coaches? 6" inch nuts? 4.5 inch? How about for 26'-30' freight cars?
Black Bear Construction Co. is a good place to do business with anyone is interested. I've had great success with all of their products and they ship in a very timely manner. I also purchase all of my NBW's in bulk from them due to the cost savings.
--DISCLAMER-- I have no affiliation with Black Bear Construction Co. other then being a happy customer.
--KP Life is to short to make all of the models I want to.
I can't agree more with KP's comments on Black Bear. I've ordered from him in N and On30. Great place to do business. I was actually crazy enough to use NBW on 2 N scale trestles. Went through over 3,000. The only thing he didn't have that I wanted was square washers. Ordered those directly from Tichy. good experience there also.
Many thanks.My order has been placed. I will look into Black Bear. Always good to get a reference for the Little Guy. Mostly, my orders go through Central Coast Trains. The owner has been super cool about things and only charges the postage for shipping. I say pretty loyal to her, but she also has sent me elsewhere to get stuff I ask for.
