The castings for "Angus". Made in New England, USA. All castings are from original Purinton patterns except the smokebox front and door; these are by H.J. Coventry.
The complete set of castings as shown is $795 plus $30 shipping to the USA. Pricing includes a construction book of Charlie's drawings that completely details all parts.
For other countries, please inquire.
Please note: The smokebox front and door castings shown above, are by H.J. Coventry. Charlie Purinton used to specify that VanBrocklin smokebox fronts be used, but they are not available at this time. The domes can be fabricated, or, H.J. Coventry domes for the 0-6-0 switcher can be used. The "Angus" owned by Jay Monty (shown in the video above and the photo below), uses the H.J. Coventry domes. Please inquire if you'd like to purchase these domes for your Angus.
