N Scale Manhole Covers
#015 002 415 001



8 Manholes Covers 


$3.55





This manhole cover is an exact replica of the one in the intersection of W. Duluth Ave and S. Massachusetts Ave in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on 05-21-10. This same style has been used since the turn of the 20th century through present day; throughout the Midwest and east coast, from big cities to small towns.



These manhole covers feature fine details like the webbing and the word 'sewer,' right down to the notch used to lift the cover up.



Options for use:

     1)  In Street

     2)  In Parking Lots

     3)  In Side walks

     4)  Anywhere you see manhole cover used

I can vouch for the accuracy of these as I grew up about 2 blocks away from the prototype! I remember dropping pebbles down through the holes with my friends. Some great new products.

Best wishes, Dave
If you lend someone $20, and never see that person again, it was probably worth it.

The center spoked section might work as an outside laminate half to a MOW cart wheel .http://www.silverlakerailroad.com/photos/SLRR-Washout--Fill-Completion/Rail%20work%20007.jpg

Ha, small world, that is actually my railcar clubs dump cart (Cotton Valley Rail Trail Club)

Might work. Those wheels are 16", pressed steel. Currently running $300 each from Harsco! (formerly Fairmont)

Fairmont made them in:
9" pressed
14" pressed
16" pressed and cast solid
20" cast solid

These could certainly come in handy.

What is the diameter of these particular covers?

I can't believe we're not getting Slim the Cowboy in N. Oh, the inhumanity.  :ashat:
