Power Reverse
This power reverse was machined up from a set of David Moore's castings.


Cold Water Pump
Cold water pump, castings from David Moore.


Berk Cab
The main sheet metal bits (top, sides, front, and back) for this cab are available from Real Trains.


Clear Vision Window
The boilers on Nickel Plate Berkshires, as with most modern main line steam, were so big that there wasn't room for a door at the front of the cab to access the running boards, so they would often use what was called a clear vision window, manufactured by the Prime Manufacturing Co. of Milwaukee Wis. This example is made from bar stock and as on the prototype features real glass, a hinged center section, and little leaf springs to retain the glass.


Both clear vision windows.
