O Gauge Power Blade For Stockyard Set - Plz Help
Posted by Anonymous on Friday, January 18, 2008 1:05 PM

So I get a stockyard set on the internet and it has everything but ... the O gauge power blade that meets up with the shoe on the trucks. Thus my set is presently useless.

I am hoping the knowledgeable folks on this forum can direct me to a source to order to new one. Thanks in advance.

Are you talking about the little piece that sticks down to make contact with the unloading rail? That piece needs to bought as a set of two pieces, the rivot and the shoe. The rivot makes contact with the spring loaded copper piece above the shoe, at least on post war stuff it does. You replace it as one part after inserting the rivot thru the shoe and lightly hammering the bottom of the rivot to mushroom it into place.

The last time I bought parts for post war stuff was at a train show in Lake Worth FL.

The "O" Gauge power blade is part number 3656-67, the "O-27" power blade is part number  3656-68, both available at The Train Tender.  For "O", you will also need the 3656-66 "O" gauge GROUND clip if you don't already have one.
