By the way, my set of Dapol single arm pantos arrived a few days ago.  They look sweet!  But they are mostly plastic and not sprung, and I see no way to force them to hold the extended position.

Bryan:

Thanks again for the link - my pantographs arrived yesterday which is pretty good service from the UK.  The Bestine also arrived so I can now get to cleaning the shells.  I am still waiting on a pair of Kato mid-production SD40-2s for chassis.

PIKO out of Germany offers some really nice, mostly metal, sprung N scale Faiveley pantographs as replacement parts for some French locomotives they offer. Part number 94130-03

I bought a couple of these. They will look real nice on my rebuilt Bachmann Metroliners. :-)

In all honesty I wouldn't do business with the individual who has produced the 3D work for these locos (Paul Burkitt-Gray) after paying him $200 for a project he has disappeared on me, does not respond to emails and seems to have vanished in general. Let's just say I'm quite pissed....

I hope he's alright. In my dealings with him, I found him to be quite skilled and very responsive.

Why were you paying him?  I don't want to get into any sort of defamation war, but I thought he had posted designs on Shapeways for sale, in which case you paid them and if they haven't delivered the product, it's them you need to pursue, not him.  If that is indeed what happened, I'm not sure I'd answer your emails either . . . though not from spite.

I've talked to him multiple times, and I have 3 of the 6 car underground train he out out and never had a problem with him.

Mine stalled when I started working ridiculous amounts of overtime to help pay for my sudden taste for brass. I've got the replacement frames, and I'm going to cut them before reassembling the whole thing. I still don't know what I'm going to do for lettering.

Hurry up Eric! I'm waiting to see how yours turn out before I bite the bullet and get some for myself.

Having things like this fall into my inbox does not do anything to calm my lust...

I actually had an idea about the lettering while I was making my last post.  Don't know if it's going to hold water (or paint) but I think it's worth a try.  Again, with all the overtime I'm working right now, don't hold your breath.

DingDingDing We have a winner!

This news might actually be enough to motivate me to get the Dremel out and trim the replacement frames. Might even finally finish the project.
