  • Building Pantographs

    I'm looking for a set of plans or instructions for modeling pantograph's preferably the diamond style but at this point I'm also looking for referance material as well so hey I'll take anything people can share

    The MR magazine index lists MR articles in May 1969 and May 1974, the latter by Bob Hegge, an experienced O traction modeler. Several others may also be findable, but there's nothing specifically about building them in the past 30 years:

      I think all the measurements given are for HO scale, but I'm sure it wouldn't be too hard to convert to another scale.

        Thanks for posting this link/site!

        While I probalby have an adequate supply of pantographs on hand and have repaired a few sets, I have yet to actually build any from scratch so this information is quite useful to stash away for future reference.
        In a time like ours seemings and portents signify. Ours is a generation when dogs howl and the skin crawls on the skull with its beast's foreboding.
