    • Do i need to clean the surfaces that make contact?  
    • I am looking for the REAR handrail for an Aristocraft SD-45.  Apparently got lost in shipment.  I've googled the same with no luck.  Any Ideas who may have something like that?  I have attached a picture of what I am looking for.  The White/Black is what I am looking for but all Black would work.  Appreciate your time.   Lawman
    • Looks great Jerry.  Some day, if I get my other 100 projects done, I will attempt that one, they are great looking locos. I probably won't be able to work on the locos or cars for a while, starting to pour the viaducts and leveling the yard with fill dirt.  Bob.
    • OK, I have finally figured out the final procedure.  I used urethane 50/50 poured plastic and added the black pigment.  The pigment doesn't seem to effect the hardness of the plastic, as I put quite a good dose into it.  Unlike the epoxy, when adding the pigment, it came out spongy.  The second part of the urethane mold didn't work out so good, so I used the hard epoxy pattern for the second part of the mold and that did the trick, well defined edges, looks like a real rubber seal as it should.  So after it is installed in the E-8, I will have to take care with the painting to make it look proper.  Here are some pictures. Bob.
    • It will contribute some to bending but I see the base width and thickness as playing a significant role as well.  Not enough to worry about either way or in either case.
